Happy Winter Solstice!

It’s the shortest day of the year!
How will you celebrate? Dancing around a bonfire with your fellow Pagans? Snuggling with your loved ones on the couch to drive away the chill of an early winter evening? However you choose to celebrate this special day, I hope you find joy and peace!

Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind

by William Shakespeare

Blow, blow, thou winter wind.

Thou art not so unkind

As man’s ingratitude;

Thy tooth is not so keen,

Because thou art not seen,

Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:

Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:

Then, heigh-ho, the holly!

This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,

That dost not bite so nigh

As benefits forgot: Though thou the waters warp,

Thy sting is not so sharp

As friend remember’d not.

Heigh-ho!

Solstice
