A Winter Solstice Ritual For Reflection & Release

And now, for the first time ever people from all the world can tune in live to watch this magical phenomenon created by the early Irish some 5000 years ago.

The word "solstice" comes from the Latin words sol sistere, which means "sun standing still".

A Doodle marking the summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere was also released featuring the same mouse reading a book inside his home before getting distracted by a bright beam of sunlight that enters his domain due to a bird.

For many people worldwide, the winter solstice is all about welcoming the return of the sun, when the darkness begins to turn to light. The Northern Hemisphere's summer solstice will take place on June 21! The Talmud calls the winter solstice "Tekufat Tevet".

Every year on December 21, a shaft of sunlight actress through the window box above the entrance to the 5,000 year old neolithic tomb and illuminates the entire passage for 17 minutes.
