Question of the Day

QOTD December 9th

Postby DeniseM » Dec 9th, '15, 11:05 am

It's still dark!! yikes. I am looking forward to the 21st of December and the knowledge that each day after will get a little lighter. Do you celebrate the Solstice?

We always did when I was growing up. We would sometimes have a bonfire and skating party if the ice on the pond on our property was frozen. I love that my parents did that. It was always so fun.

We try to mark it with a bonfire and something good to eat and drink. :) Not as often now that the boys are older and not around as often.

we did when i was younger....there was a community bonfire with activities and things going on...
loved it!
haven't much in the recent past...
but have been known to do a backyard fire with food and some drinks :)
it's a good way to celebrate, i think :)

I'm looking forward to that day too Denise! Celebrating it sounds fun, although we've never done it. Maybe I'll see if dh will drag out the fire pit. ;)

We don't celebrate and I haven't heard of celebrations like that before - but it seems very appropriate! I really don't like the darkness!

I'd never heard of it before being here, but love the idea.
Can't wait for the lighter evenings.
