The word “solstice” means, “sun stands still” and has been celebrated since ancient times. The Romans, for example, honored Saturn, the god of time and harvest, with a week-long feast called Saturnalia.
While the traditions surrounding the winter solstice differ from culture to culture, most recognize it as a symbol of rebirth.
From out of the darkness and cold, the light, and hope returns. Seasons Greetings!
