The year comes around again to the winter solstice and the many ways we humans have commemorated this time of year. The need to mark time, to be more present than usual, to imbue time with meaning is ancient in us. What we do these days and what was done long ago are very different. But under it all, our little planet is spinning in a vast universe and we mark time, making some days more significant to us than others.
Sharing traditions, sharing meals and gifts we look back and we look forward to the future. Gathering we make these days of special significance. We make them ours.
