Please excuse the supremacist act this video perpetuates by NOT mentioning the People's That Preceded "The Gaia Theory" that insinuated or outright said the very same thing. This video does a decent job of explaining the concept.
Also the prejudiced (against all) logical fallacy of credentialism (Appeal to Authority) by its insinuation that Hippies are not Scientists and Scientists aren't or cant be Hippies...
Hello Everyone! Many Blessings!
Well here we are, the shortest SUN day of the year and the first official day of winter. The winter solstice is one of the oldest celebrations in the world, specifically giving thanks to the return of the sun. This celebration dates back to the Neo-Lithic period, or the birth of agriculture around 10,200 B.C. This year the winter solstice is on December 21st, and at 08:27 PM M.T., earth will be titled away from the sun on its axis at its farthest point.
A couple of places that have monuments where you can see the event up close are located in England and another in Ireland. In England they have the beautiful Stonehenge Circle, where during the winter solstice you can see the sun set to the south-west of the stone circle. Last year about 4,500 people gathered at the Stonehenge to witness the magic first hand. In Ireland they have another historic landmark called The Newgrange Tomb. This tomb is said to be the burial tomb for the chief Dagda of Ireland and built by his people Tuatha De Danann. During the winter solstice the rising sun shines through a small square or “window” in the front of the tomb, that illuminates the entire inside for about 17 minutes. Each year as many as 30,000 people apply to see it and only 60 people actually get chosen to go inside.
Now for the rest of us that are not part of that 60…, How do we celebrate the solstice at home?
For me and my family, we absolutely love to bring nature inside our home. We decorate a Yule tree with dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and even popcorn strands. We gather items from outside such as pine, pinecones, acorns, or leaves to add to our homemade Yule candle log. We exchange gifts that are sustainable and earth friendly with our neighbors such as, bread, jams, homemade soaps and oils, or even dries herbs/flowers.
And of course, FOOD! Have a feast! Bake those squash! Get out that flour, cinnamon and apples!
Enjoy the beautiful family time, give thanks for the year you had and set good intentions for the year to come.
I hope you enjoy your celebrations no matter what you are choosing to do this season.
Again, Happy Happy Solstice and Many Many Blessings to you all.
