Did You Know? - The Winter Solstice is unique among days of the year — the time of the longest night and the shortest day. The dark triumphs but only briefly. For the Solstice is also a turning point. From now on (until the Summer Solstice, at any rate), the nights grow shorter and the days grow longer, the dark wanes and the Sun waxes in power. From the dark womb of the night, the light is born.
Many of the customs associated with the Winter Solstice (and therefore with other midwinter festivals such as St Lucy's Day, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, New Years and Twelfth Night) derive from stories of a mighty battle between the dark and the light, which is won, naturally, by the light.
Everyone begins to arrive
Comparing dance cards...
"I'm sorry but I won't tell"
Did You Know? - He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. ~Roy L. Smith
"Checking the list and checking it twice!"
Welcome to the dance...
The Gray's have arrive... We can start now!
"I am ready to dance...."
First on the floor...
Wyatt is full of Christmas music this evening
Working up an appetite for dinner!
Gary... Our own two-fisted drinker
Romance is in the air!
Love those poinsettias
The Christmas picture
Gliding across the floor... Almost like ice skating
Perhaps a little cha cha?
Go Dotti Go!
The snowball was this big! Really!
Quotes To Remember: " May love and light fill your home and heart at Hanukkah"
The Christmas dance music was outstanding
Did You Know? - Wassail (Old Norse "ves heil", Old English was hál, literally 'be you healthy') is a beverage of hot mulled cider, traditionally drunk as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval southern English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year. The name comes from the salute 'Waes Hail', first used as a simple greeting. The later Danish-speaking inhabitants of England seem to have turned "was hail", and the reply "drink hail", into a drinking formula adopted widely by the indigenous population of England.
"She did it!"
Reds and greens... Definitely the holidays!
