Tonight marks the beginning of longer days and shorter nights. That’s something to celebrate!
In fact, the winter solstice has been one of the most significant times of the year in many cultures around the world, and for thousands of years.
Marked by festivals and rituals, it’s the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun.
Think of Father Time, who is the perfect metaphor for this seasonal event.
I don’t have anything quite as glamorous as Stonehenge to offer here, but that said, here in the Haliburton Highlands, (we do have lots of beautiful rock, in the form of the Canadian Shield), along with some of the most dazzling sunsets and scenic views in the world.
So, throw a Yule log on the fire and have fun celebrating this magical time of year.
Happy Winter Solstice, everyone!
