MidnightBells I celebrate it by doing meditations and a ritual if I can, but it's hard to do special things in such a small Christian town. Once I move away, I hope to find a local group that I can celebrate Sabbats with, though. ^^

karenlovessnow I had no idea how awesome Winter Solstice is! I did a search and came across two really cool websites! I'm definitely going to celebrate it next year, 12/21/08.

I simply did a Solitary ritual, decorated a couple of trees, ate some bread and water (can't afford biscuits [cookies] and wine) and gave an offering to the Supreme Being.



Oh and I magically called three crows and the thought of feeding them didn't even pop into my head

slimlife 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.

Spidergrrl 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.

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

Kiz 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.

cryptoveggie 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.
