The December Solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere marks the “turning of the sun,” heralding the return of longer, brighter days. Celebrations of the return of the light and the continuation of nature’s cycles have been common throughout history and cultures with holidays, feasts and festivals occurring around the Winter Solstice.

We warmly invite you to join us in bringing light into the darkness this Solstice by lighting a candle. Dedicate your candle to peace, love, a beloved person, or to our beautiful planet Earth.

If you use the word “Solstice” in your candle message, we can all search on the word “Solstice” on the candle page to see how many candles are lit at any one time. Together we can uplift and illuminate the world with our light.

If you are nourished by this practice and would like to further share the “light” of this Solstice, consider brightening someone’s day with a Solstice eCard.
