Around the world many different cultures and religions celebrate after winter solstice. Why? It’s because the highest point of the sun in the sky is rising again. Days are getting longer. We have survived the worst darkness of the year. The world still exists. The regularity of the world has not given way to chaos and decay. The apocalypse hasn’t happened, yet. I think that’s a pretty good reason to celebrate – in whatever way you may deem appropriate.
At the very least, I am grateful to the cosmos that I still exist, and have the opportunity to experience these things called life and the world.
Happy winter solstice holidays everyone! And thanks for being here!
