Happy solstice! For the longest night of the year we love to gather outdoors with friends, with candles, lanterns, a bonfire to warm ourselves, and some wood-fired baking from the cob oven. How will you celebrate the longest night?
For anyone here in town, don't forget about the annual neighbourhood Lantern Walk on Dec 21. Anyone is welcome! Bring a lantern, and join a slow wintery walk around the snowy streets. What a lovely idea! Here are some beautiful ideas for making your own lanterns. And 10 more ideas for making your own simple lanterns from jars, coloured paper, brown paper bags, paper mache, and more recycled materials.
