Winter Solstice wishes is a fun little thing to do for the winter solstice. Get yourself some pine cones preferably on a wonderful nature hike. Get some little pieces of paper to write your hopes, dreams, wishes and intentions for the coming year. Tuck them in the pine cones. Use them to get your fire started with your yule log for a wonderful way to celebrate the winter solstice.
This year in 2021 in the northern hemisphere the winter solstice will take place on December 21, at 10:59am EST. Since it is the longest night of the year, it is a perfect time for some reflection and of course winter solstice wishes. What will your wishes be?
I had to smile when I came here to update this post from 2019. I am updating this from my airbnb in Zagreb, Croatia. My husband Dan and I decided to sell our home in California and most of our belongings to follow our dream of traveling the world. We left in April of 2021 and have added 10 more countries to our travels. This is what I wrote back in 2019.
"A few years ago, I started this tradition and since that time I have traveled to over 21 countries. I think setting an intention and then working to make it happen goes a long way to making your dreams come true.
This year, it is my hope to go on permanent travel, entering a new and dreamed about chapter in my life. I look forward to sharing my journey with you."
So, fair warning wishes and dreams do come true!
I know life has not been easy for many during this world wide pandemic. My wish is that it ends soon and life can get back to some semblance of normal. The winter solstice tradition is one I love as it is a time to let go of the past and darkness and move toward the light. It is also a time where we as humans no matter where we are in the world, share something together, the changing of a season.
I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season. May all your wishes and dreams come true!
Until next time,
Hvala (Thank you) in Croatian for following along.
