Ancient Cultural Traditions and the Solstice

The Winter Solstice is a dark time of year - the darkest here in the northern hemisphere. Since ancient time, humans have replaced the long hours of darkness with lights and festivals, celebrating with fire, family and community gatherings. The Celtic people of Ireland and many other cultures chose the solstice as a time to celebrate the seasons. The cycle of nature is the ultimate celebration. The Elgin Public Museum invites you to hear about ancient cultures and the astronomical significance of the winter solstice. Learn about the Druid Oak King and the Holly Queen and watch the Yule log be burned in a glowing campfire. Learn about the significance of the harvest and wildlife to ancient peoples. Drink warm cider and enjoy campfire treats. $5, $3 member price.
