Winter Solstice 2013

  • 0

In ancient times, the Winter Solstice was the beginning of the Twelve Days of Yule (today known largely as the Twelve Days of Christmas), each of which commemorated a particular month of the year. Also called Winter Sunstead, the Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year, the time at which the noon day Sun appears at its lowest altitude above the horizon, and remains an important marker to cultures and calendars around the world.

No matter your faith here on the Suncoast, enjoy this contemplative time of year to reflect on life, love, family, the past year and the future ahead.
