A solstice party
I've been casting around for years now trying to land on a tradition for the solstice and I think we've found one. . .this year we had our own spiral in the yard. It combined the best of everything for me, candle light and homemade lanterns, outdoors at night, fire, neighbors, school families and kids running around, all of it.
We set it up as an open house so people could come and go. We served soup and bread and a few other snacks and people brought sweets to share. The spiral was beautiful and fun. We had a nice fire on the back patio and people sat out and watched the spiral, and watched the fire, and ate soup, and stayed late, and the rain held off. So, now we have it: winter solstice garden spiral and fire. See you next year.
