Winter solstice celebration

December 21 / 3:30 PM - December 21 / 6:00 PM

Come celebrate the child in each of us as we mark the changing of seasons. You don't need a child "escort" to attend this family celebration but of course babies and children of all ages are welcome (and usually find it fun too).

Children's Day honours the spirit and innate wisdom of children and gives us all the opportunity to rediscover this energy in ourselves.

At a time when the weather begins to bear down upon us, we turn to family for celebration, creativity, and generosity. Because the solstice marks the time of year when the night is longest and daylight has waned, celebrating light is a special characteristic of this holiday. Celebration of the winter solstice has its roots in many different cultures.

Starting at 3:30 there will be candelight ceremony and winter soltice celebration in the main shrine room

At 5:00 there will be a potluck supper. (Please bring something to share.)

Anyone with a youthful spirit is invited to attend this day celebrating children and the beginning of a new season. Celebratory, uplifted attire is welcomed!
