These are the days that Reindeer love.....

These are the days that Reindeer love
And pranks the Northern Star -
This is the Sun's Objective,
And Finland of the Year.
- Emily Dickinson

It is the Winter Solstice, my friends. The shortest day of the year.
Happy Winter and Yule, for those who celebrate. Finally, the sun will return to us a bit longer every day. By the time my birthday rolls around in late January, the sun sets around six. The light is returning.

How am I celebrating Winter's entrance. I have a lone bright sunshiny yellow candle burning on my altar.

For today, you can light a yellow or orange candle. Or any color or a fragrant candle that reminds you of the sun. Listen to songs about the sun or sunshine. Even rock the colors of daylight in your wardrobe as you go shopping or baking today.

Winter is a lovely season. So celebrate it in whatever way that makes your heart sing.

Sending you a sunny wave for Winter's day.

Oh Shell I just watched the loveliest video for Solstice about reindeers as a totem animal. Such majestic creatures, I can't believe people hunt them!
