Out of the darkness, and heading for the light.
Saturday may be the first day of winter...but it's also the milestone that means that the longest night of the year is behind us.
Whether you're planning on dancing with abandon this weekend, or just looking forward to not travelling to and from work in the dark, there's a sense of renewed energy and hope that comes with the return of the light. Get out and celebrate it!
Since the earliest times, people have set fire to their regrets, disappointments and failures on the longest night and watched them disappear in the bright flames.
That's a good idea...and the ashes will help your spring garden grow.
