December 21 / 2:30 PM - December 21 / 6:00 PM
You and your family are cordially invited to join us for Children's Day.
Children's Day falls on December 21st, the time of the winter solstice (in the northern hemisphere.) Children's Day provides a special opportunity to express appreciation for and with our children. Because the solstice marks the time of year when the night is longest and daylight has waned, light is a special characteristic of this holiday.
Celebration of the winter solstice has its roots in many different cultures. The Shambhala Community has drawn on traditional images associated with this time of year to create a distinctive and rich festival of our own.
We will celebrate with an afternoon of stories, crafts, songs, and a meal.
Children are encouraged to dress up as kings and queens of their own worlds if they wish.
They are also encouraged to bring something to share with a less fortunate family--a can of food, a gently-used or new toy or piece of clothing.
They may also bring their favorite stuffed animal or toy as a guest for the afternoon.
You may register here; please indicate the number of guests attending in the "Comments" section.
