On the Edge of Night
Cultures the world over have celebrations that take place on or near the Winter Solstice, and much of the symbolism overlaps: we celebrate the turning of the tide of darkness back toward longer days and shorter nights. For those of us in northern climes, we gather whatever warmth and light we can: friends and family, the special foods and gifts we've saved to share, cosy fires, hot toddies, down blankets, wool socks, coloured lights - all the things that guide us through the annual pilgrimage into darkness and back out into the new-dawning year and the promise of spring, even though it's still too early to see or feel it.
Below you will find the rest of the holiday series, with a new piece debuted each year since 2017.
