On this, the longest night
For our ancestors, food was scarce
Fire,essential to survival
On this night, Hope would shine through the darkness
For on the Solstice
The wheel of the year turns & with it
The light returns
Knowing the Sun was returning brought hope, faith.
With that faith came a tradition of sharing.
On Solstice Eve they shared their bounty,
For they knew they would survive the barren months.
They knew the Sun would be returning &
The land plentiful again.
The Ancient Ones had faith.
May it be with Faith that you share your bounty
May you honor the Element of Fire
May you honor The Great Mother and the return of the Sun/Son
