I like the winter solstice.  I always have, since learning about it in school as a kid.  I've always thought there was something magical about the longest night of the year.  After this night the sun begins its slow ascent and the days become longer until the snow melts and the wheel of the year brings us back to spring.  In ancient times Midwinter, as some call the solstice, marked the return of the sun, the giver of life.  Such a hopeful and magical thing to think on.  Who couldn't use a little magic in their lives?
