Solstice celebration!!

Today is the shortest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere. I'll be spending it in the far north, where the day is shorter than in some other places.

I like to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes, just to mark the natural cycles of the year and recognize the seasons. Usually our celebrations involve fire and meat on a stick, accompanied by plenty of libations.

My Minister planner has the solstices and equinoxes pre-printed onto the days, which is great because normally I have to write these in every year.

Do you celebrate or otherwise recognize the solstices and equinoxes? Are there holidays or celebrations that you usually have to write into your planner yourself because they are not pre-printed?

Happy Solstice everybody!
