Silent Night, Solstice Night

Postby Windi1 » December 15th, 2020, 11:44:05 am

The Winter Solstice has forever been a season of remembrance, gifting and gathering. Many, many moons ago, this Pagan holiday started as a coven gathering to celebrate the longest day of the Wheel. This is when the nights slowly and gradually grow shorter and the days grow longer. It is also when... well... let's read about what it is, shall we?

The winter solstice, hiemal solstice or hibernal solstice, also known as midwinter, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere (Northern and Southern). For that hemisphere, the winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year, when the Sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky.[3] At the pole, there is continuous darkness or twilight around the winter solstice. Its opposite is the summer solstice. Also the Tropic of Cancer or Tropic of Capricorn depending on the hemispheres winter solstice the sun goes 90 degrees below the horizon at solar midnight to the nadir.



In the past, the Winter Solstice has started on or around the 18th of December. Magi of all ages gather to talk in whispers about what they'll be gifting in secret or allowing the wee folk to know who sent them what. As always, the number of egg slots goes up at least by 3, each person gifting another is allowed only 3 gifts to give to one person. Many love to help out Saint Nick in his duties.

I ask you now... post here what you think you may be getting from our own Saint Nick. Speculations are allowed, disrespect is not or else coal be slipped into your stocking overnight. *grins* I also wonder what our new pet(s) may or will be. Have a safe and Blessed Yule, my friends!

Bees, bees, bees! Oh how I love these baubles!

For the next several days, these pretty bees are the knees of baubles. The Solstice Caravan is also present and operating in the Shops!

If you look at the adult descriptions of the Bees that have 2 colors their honey has 2 flavours and Bees with single color have only one flavour of honey.

Bouba Baublebee - ginger
Azraq Baublebee - mint and cinnamon
Firoza Baublebee - apples and nutmeg
Royal Baublebee - grapes
Nila Baublebee - cloves
Aurean Baublebee - lemon and chocolate

I just recently came back from over a year long hiatus, so I am excited to be back for the holiday season!

I am hoping to get some creatures I missed out on while I was gone. <3

There were people asking on Halloween if there would be a GB, so I think it's fair that they add that it won't be happening.

I'm just glad that it's Christmas time and that it feels like it! :D
Last year was a weird year for me and I just couldn't get into Christmas despite that it's my favourite holiday. I felt unusually Grinchy for some reason. :t-shrug:

Thank you, Lazuli, for my signature sprites!
