Winter solstice

Fun day

Finally the sun has turned and we can look forward to some lighter days :)
We woke up to fresh snow and -15 C / 5 F today. Despite the urge to go out, we have spent the day inside baking cookies and wrapping the last christmas presents ;) So this picture is from last weekend, but it shows you how dark/light we have it in the middel of the day. I found this beautiful poem at Ninny Noodle Noo.


Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
Till in Springtime She wakens again
Sleeping spirits grow strong!
Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent night, Solstice night
Silver moon shining bright
Snowfall blankets the slumbering Earth
Yule fires welcome the Sun’s rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night
Quiet rest till the Light
Turning ever the rolling Wheel
Brings the Winter to comfort and heal
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!

  2. Your blog looks so Christmasy! We've been having a lot of rain, and there is snow on the mountains about fifteen minutes away from us, so we're feeling a little like it's winter.
