Winter Solstice Celebration
Description
The Winter Solstice is the day on which the midday sun is at its lowest point in the sky (it arrives this year on Thursday, December 21st). The solstices mark key turning points in the year and have been celebrated by many cultures throughout history. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day (and the longest night) of the year, and we’ll celebrate it on the 17th of December.

Join Boot Boutwell in celebrating The Winter Solstice. We’ll begin with some solstice poetry, science and lore and then go for a walk around The Farm and into the woods beyond to celebrate the solstice season, learn a little about plants in their winter form and to enjoy the beauty of nature as winter approaches. The program will end around an outdoor fire with a cup of hot cider.

Children 10 years and up are welcome if accompanied by a registered adult.
