A few minutes ago, I hit “publish” on my Witchy Wednesday post for last week. I still haven’t started a Fandom Friday for the 18th, but I figured I’d jump ahead to today’s post so at least one of my last three posts will be on time. *grin*
The title of the post is, “Yule aka Winter Solstice” and since it occurs here in New Hampshire tonight, I got it in just under the wire. This morning, I managed to snag a sunrise picture (it’s too overcast for a sunset), and this is what I shared in a Facebook group earlier –
Solstice sunrise, taken this morning (exact time of the solstice in NH is tonight at 11:49 PM EST).
Years ago, we (me, hubby, and three kidlets) got up before dawn and drove with friends to a local field. At sunrise, we “sang up the sun” (I wish I could remember the chant we used, but it was essentially encouraging, then thanking the sun’s return).
This morning, after snapping a few pictures, I took a moment to silently welcome the sun’s return again, then gave thanks.
Bright solstice blessings to all!
No matter what your beliefs are, I hope you enjoy light and love today, and every day.
