Winter Solstice Celebration

UUCM Sacred Wheel (CUUPS) is holding a Winter Solstice celebration on Sunday, December 22, 2019, from 12:30 to 2:30 PM in the Rotunda at UUCM. 

The Winter Solstice, is the shortest day of the year. It takes place every year on the 21st or 22nd of December (Northern Hemisphere).

We know today that the Sun will return, because the course of the Sun and the other planets in our system have been scientifically explored. Our ancestors did not take the return of the Sun for granted, and in addition they were suffering much more under the hardships of severe winter weather than we do today. For an agricultural society, whose survival depended mostly on crops, the return of the Sun was not just a matter of casual celebration, it was rather a matter of life or death.

Event is free of charge. Nonperishable food donations for the local food pantry are requested. For more information, contact ann.otter.trip@gmail.com. UUCM Sacred Wheel is also on Facebook at: facebook.com/groups/UUCMSacredWheel

To the Editor: Not the First Time Montclair Leader Mentions Jews
