Gruesse zur Wintersonnenwende

The heaps and heaps and heaps of snow which fell this weekend created a fitting backdrop for our family's Winter Solstice.  We ate by candlelight, and the intermittent glow of the temperamental string of LEDs we have in the kitchen.

After dinner, the TruffulaBoyz made pomanders with tangerines and cloves.  The results smell fantastic!

We then revisited some of the songs we used during our recent Advent Spiral [with better candelight for the lead musician this time ;-) ].

I hadn't realized that the Winter Solstice is also called "Thomastag", recalling said apostle's reluctance to acknowledge the risen Jesus (and the longest night before the return of the Light).
