WINTER SOLSTICE marks the onset of the Winter season. In traditions around the world, it's a time for inward reflection and a celebration of the coming of "light." It is both the shortest day of the year, and conversely . . . the longest night. One of the most important Chinese and East Asian festivals is the Winter Solstice Dōngzhì Festival (Chinese: 冬至; pinyin: Dōngzhì; lit. 'winter's extreme') - which is celebrated during the Dongzhi (Winter Solstice) each year. Winter Solstice in any tradition is an ideal opportunity to contemplate the change of season, as each day hereafter will become incrementally longer (more daylight). The metaphor, both literally and figuratively, is "the coming of the light" and the contemplation of the darkness (Winter) we walk through to get there.

Wishing you all health, happiness and abundance!
