Winter solstice calls for slow mornings and banana pancakes.

The winter solstice is a celebration of the longest, darkest night and shortest day, a powerful transition between seasons. In Pagan times the winter solstice was referred to as ‘Yule’ and was a celebration of the Goddess (Moon) energy. It was believed that on this day, the moon would give birth to the sun.

I love this idea,

let us celebrate the moon as we welcome back the sun.
