Introduction to the Winter Solstice


The Wheel of the Year has turned once more, and today we discuss the history and traditions of the Winter Solstice, the astronomical occurrence which marks the longest night and shortest day of the year, corresponding with the Christian holiday, Christmas, and the pagan festival of Yule!

Thank you so much for watching! What have the Winter Solstice time holidays meant to you growing up? Has your connection to it changed over time? Have a closer look at it in your journal, and share some of your musings in the comments below!

  1. Hi, this is Wendy. I love your products and plan to be a future customer. I previously didn’t sign in as a member on Instagram so I cannot get back in. Anyway, the reason why I’m messaging you is that on Instagram I could find your coupons occasionally for more than 15% off. How can I now obtain this information? Thank you blessed be


    1. Hey Wendy! Thank you so much for being such a loyal supporter! The best way to find out about coupons is to sign up for the newsletter, which I see you just did! The next coupon code will be coming out this week, so keep an eye on your inbox 🙂
