Does anyone celebrate the winter solstice, specifically? What do you do? I'd like to join in on one--go to an event or something.

Bof 12-20-2007 03:27 PM

Excuse me. I think you'll find that it's Summer Solstice on Dec. 22nd.

Wolfie 12-20-2007 04:18 PM

I don't celebrate it but I look forward to it because it means ever so slowly, daylight will last longer.

cryptoveggie 12-20-2007 05:08 PM

I'm planning on meditating, painting, and drinking lots of soy nog while I wait up the sun Friday night/Saturday morning.

Eh? Really? Why would the Summer Solstice be in the Winter? Oh, I guess if you're in the southern Hemisphere it's the Summer Solstice.



I want to go around to people all day and say, "I had a really long night last night." JK--lame joke. BUT, if someone tells me "I had a long night last night," I'm going to reply, "Yeah, we all did." I'd like to stay up all night doing something.

We started Winter here in Chicago since a month ago



We had severe ice storms, +8 inches of snow and below 10 F

Are you sure about the time? The news here have it listed at 6:08 GMT, which would be more like 10 PM, PST.

isowish 12-21-2007 09:30 AM

the winter solstice is also my parent's handfasting anniversary

um yeah I don't celebrate it though.

IamJen 12-21-2007 10:57 AM

Wow! I don't know anyone who's done that before...I thought it only happened in storybooks.

Lucious 12-21-2007 12:58 PM

I celebrate it in my own little way.

Louise Rebecca 12-21-2007 01:27 PM

Im going to celebrate it by going for a nice long walk tomorrow and enjoying winter (I love winter)

WonderRandy 12-21-2007 02:30 PM

I'm going to a Saturnalia tonight...

cryptoveggie 12-21-2007 05:00 PM

Well, my plans have been changed slightly. Our lab passed on and I'm not sure I have the energy to wait up the sun. I'll probably stay up for a bit and then get some sleep.

I celebrate the Winter Solstice, yeah, not so much the Summer one though. Why celebrate spending less time at the beach? Though, like Bof, it'll be another 6 months until I can celebrate the winter one.

nope not that it was much like any of the various kinds of 'traditional' handfasting, they just wanted a name to give their non-legal commitment ceremony really.



And their wedding anniversary is on the Summer solstice

Ah. Did they tie their hands?



As for the Solstice....I snoozed away this morning.

I have a tree made of wood that I decorate as each season changes. For Yule we took off the Autumnal equinox decorations and put on the winter ones. The winter ones are silver ribbons and silver lacy looking leaves with glass snowflake ornaments. I also put out white sea glass that looks like ice under the tree. The winter one is simple but beautiful. A student gave me some winter popourri that had little silver braches in it so layed some of that down between the icy sea glass and it looks real purdy.

People in my country celebrate winter solstice, but we do nothing special.

The only thing we do is eating redbean soup, it's totally veg*n food.
