Happy winter Solstice!
So amazing that today was also a lunar eclipse.
I didn't see the Eclipse (although I wish I had), apparently the skies turned an amazing shade of red, turning the frozen ground to glow deep crimson.
For the first time in nearly 400 years the lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice. At one point, both sun and eclipsed moon was briefly visible above the horizon, called a selenehelion.
So, today, on the shortest most magical day of the year... we are planning to celebrate with many candles, good food & company.
Have a wonderful solstice.
