Winter solstice great conjunction
Winter solstice great conjunction:The Winter Solstice is a very special day, full of tradition and meaning. It is the first day of the New Year. It is the only Pagan Holiday that has no religious connection to it, yet it is widely celebrated by pagans all over the world. This day has its roots in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced “sigh-ee”), or Halloween, as it was then called.
This particular day was honored in Samhainite times, as it was the day when they rewarded their ancestors with gifts. Gifts were usually made of wood, and perhaps even offerings of food or drink. This tradition may have begun when people realized that on that day they could give more than food and drink. Some people have suggested that the idea of offering food or drink on this day, may have been motivated by the fact that some ancient Druids were believed to be able to harvest sap from pinecones, which would make an excellent gift, if made in the right shape.
In today’s modern context, many people are familiar with this Holiday. It is a symbol for the ancient Celtic belief that every year, on this day, children would visit the Winter solstice temples. This would represent the beginning of spring, and the sun would shine bright once again. For centuries, people from various cultures across Europe, Northern America and Asia gathered to celebrate this Pagan Holiday. This day became known as the Winter Solstice.
Today, this symbol has become linked with what people perceive as “trick or treat” fun. It is a way for people to enjoy the season while getting ready to deal with the end of the year. Some people prefer the Winter Solstice symbol as a way to remember family, while others choose to use it as a symbol for “taking the holidays back to basics”.
The Winter Solstice can be found on many calendars, both online and offline. A simple Internet search will bring up the name of many different companies offering themed packages. These packages usually include travel to a destination, as well as accommodations and food. The price for all of this can vary greatly depending on how adventurous you want to get. Some people prefer to simply visit family members and friends during the holiday, and skip the additional holiday elements.
No matter what your preference, the Winter Solstice is a beautiful holiday. While there is no guarantee that you will actually receive any goodies during the day, it is certainly possible to win prizes, win drawings and decorate your home with Winter-themed items. Most people who attend these celebrations never leave home. Instead of a glass of milk or bagels at breakfast, they enjoy a delicious hot chocolate or cookies. At the end of the day, they reflect on the gifts that they brought to their friends and family and wonder how they were able to combine such varied treats and activities into one harmonious experience.
