Happy Solstice!


Today is the Winter Solstice--or Yule--the shortest day of the year. It's a day that is celebrated by many different cultures as the long days of darkness gives way to the light.

Take a moment to think about the light and the darkness and how important this day was to our ancestors who had no electric lights. When the rising and setting of the sun was the most important part of their day.

Happy Solstice!
