Welcome to our Winter Solstice Dinner - 17 June 2006
Southern Hemisphere Solstice: 21 June

a turning point, a point of change, where the tides of the year turn
the time of the longest night
the mistletoe berries are white, representing the semen of the Horned God
the holly berries are blood red, symbolising both the menstrual blood of the Goddess
a time for visions; Rhiannon, the Celtic Mare Goddess, rides through the dreams of her people by night, transporting them to the place between the worlds where they can create their own visions, giving them a gift of what they need most, helping them to make real their dreams
