Everything You Need to be Ready for Winter and the Winter Solstice
The winter solstice is a time of renewal and celebration, which is why so many cultures mark major holidays just around this time. It's also the first day of winter and it begins around 4:48 pm today (December 21st)! It's the day of the year when the sun travels the shortest path through the sky, resulting in the least sunlight and the longest night. Solstices are marked by the Earth's maximum tilt, 23.5 degrees, toward or away from the sun. During a winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the hemisphere tilts away from the sun. The Northern Hemisphere will have just 8 hours and 46 minutes of daylight on this day. Earth's axis will tilt at 10:19 pm, causing the North Pole of the Earth to face the furthest away from the sun.
So, we thought it would be interesting to look at some things that could help through Winter and the Solstice; starting with candles which are widely used for light, ambiance, renewals, and celebrations. They keep things warm and bright when the sky is dark this solstice and these cute little soy candles will keep the mystic feeling alive the entire season with wintery scents that you’ll crave the whole year.
