Dancing and carolling through the dark days of the winter solstice

Season’s Greetings

Best wishes and greetings to all who read my posts – have a happy, green and gorgeous winter.

Here are are some wonderful songs to listen to over the solstice

It will soon be the night of the Winter Solstice

Keep your fires burning and your candles lit throughout the longest night

Bring in enough firewood to keep your family warm on the cold days

Dance and sing to keep warm and to celebrate life

Decorate your home with evergreen leaves and branches for good fortune

Make a feast of wine and good food to share with your friends

Offer kindness and charity to those in need, it is a human duty

This is a time to spend with your beloved.

      Hi Emma – thank you – I am delighted that you especially enjoyed it as I know you don’t much like poetry
