‘Winter Solstice Singing Ritual’

Winter Solstice — the shortest day and longest night of the year — is upon us. “Many modern Christmas traditions featuring candles and lights, as well as Christmas trees, are thought to be direct descendants of Winter Solstice celebrations from centuries past,” says First Unitarian Church music director Christe Lunsford, who will lead a 90-minute of songs and stories to celebrate the season. Whether you’ll be celebrating the son of God or the return of the sun, the Unitarian Church welcomes all. This year, especially, their open embrace of diverse beliefs may be the gift most cherished and needed.
