What is the true meaning of Winter Solstice and Christmas

by | December 2020 | News

It’s the holiday season, the season to be merry, bright, jolly and eat lots and lots of Christmas cookies. The daily grind of the lockdown is giving way to joy and sparkle- after all, Santa is coming to town (we do have an official daily countdown at our home!). Elves are showing up in interesting places, the Christmas tree is up, and just maybe, these Holidays will bring more quiet, centered, balanced moments, and the inner calling to feel the true meaning of Christmas. The one that speaks about love, light, and joy being born into this world…

Τoday is also the Winter Solstice. It is the longest night of the year, it is a time of stillness before brighter days put nature’s regeneration and rebirth into action. Since this month we primarily discussed with you the topic of stress, let’s take a moment to hold still, exhale, and ponder on what we are grateful for. Is it health? Family? Love? Friends (even over the phone)? Studies? Work? Inner peace? If we answered yes to at least one of the above, then we are in a better place than the majority of the people on this planet. For example, this month we have enjoyed online yoga classes, a whole-based vegan diet, many quiet nights in front of the fireplace when our little one is asleep, and the very essence of sitting still for a while.

Filled with gratitude for having you in our life, we wish you and yours Happy Holidays and a New Year filled with peace within, warmth in our hearts, and lots and lots of smiles!

With love,
Christina & Georgios
