May you be filled with serenity on this the shortest day and longest night.
May whatever despairs or sadness you carry be burned away by the returning sun,
for every period of darkness there will be one of light.
May you be surrounded by loved ones and laughter,
May your home be filled with joy and warmth,
as you rejoice in this festive season.
May you take some time for yourself,
to reflect on days both past and future,
May you find peace in the beautiful quietude of Winter.
Warmest wishes and brightest blessing to you and yours on this Solstice day!
I revel in the return of the sun and the coming of longer days. I bid farewell to the Holly King; hail to the Oak King! Hail to the return of the light!
