Winter Solstice - Guest Post by Linda Villano, SerendipiTea

Monday, December 18th 2017 @ 10:09 PM

Friday, December 21st is the Winter Solstice (Yule time), the shortest day of the year which many cultures around the world marked by feasting, drinking & celebrating. In Western cultures what was left of the autumn fruit harvest was often dried & preserved for cooking; decorating the home with evergreen warded off evils & also celebrated the hope of coming spring; beer & wine was fermented so it could be imbibed during the long winter ahead.
