Yuletide Blessings my friends,
I send my heartfelt wishes for a meaningful holiday and a hope filled New Year. December 21st is the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere. The Winter Solstice is honored with ceremonies using some form of light all over the world. Folks have burned Yule logs, gathered for bonfires, and lit torches, candles, and oil lamps. The traditions reassured them that the days of more light would be returning.

This year, December 21st will be a powerful time and not only because it is the longest night.Read More
