Re: Winter solstice
I was raised with both the Catholic tradition and what
we called "The Way". Our celebration of the winter
solstice is the Return of The Light which celebrates
the turning of the season and the days getting longer.
The God that died in the Autumn is beginning to be
reborn. He is completely reborn at the Equinox.
If any would like more information or a copy of the
ritual that I use, feel free to contact me on-list or
off-list and I will send you the ritual.
