FEAST OF THE BOAR'S HEAD

Winter Solstice: Light in the Dark

The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year. The sun only comes out for a few hours in most areas of the Northern hemisphere and can appear to stand still in the sky. The significant meaning of the day is the reversal or the rebirth of the sun, where the days gradually get longer each day until reaching the summer solstice in June. Many cultures in history have celebrated the winter solstice as a special event or holiday. It was a date used as a guide for planting crops, mating animals, fermenting wine, and timing food rations for the rest of winter. The concept of light coming from dark can have many meanings and is especially symbolic during the modern times we are in.


Please come and celebrate coming into the light this year at Boar’s Head!
