Winter solstice

…in icelandic, christmas is “jól”, which has nothing of christianity in it but is believed to be from way before that and I have heard some theories that is related to the word “hjól” or “wheel”. It is about winter solstice and reminds us of how the seasons roll wheel like forwards: it is a celebration of the days getting a little longer and the light returning. I have always absolutely adored christmas, for me it is the time when I sense harmony best.
