Winger Solstice Celebration, Old Forge Library, Image credit Old Forge LibraryAn outdoor Solstice Celebration at the Old Forge Library will take place on Thursday, Dec. 21 at 4 pm. Community members are invited to come and celebrate with fire and lights together with neighbors and friends. This year’s participants will reflect on a time for peace on our planet.

Cultures around the world have long celebrated the winter solstice. Since Neolithic times, people have marked the solstice with ceremonies and offerings that mark the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun. The gradual waning of daylight hours is reversed and begins to grow again. Fire and light are traditional symbols of festivities held on the darkest day of the year.

We plan to celebrate Mother Earth, with our friends and neighbors at Weaving Home to create an opportunity to gather, celebrate and focus on the beautiful planet we call home and claim a role in protecting her. Those wishing to participate are invited to bring lights. Please dress for the weather, as the celebration is held outside.

For questions please contact the Old Forge Library.
