We don’t know how long the solstices have been celebrated for, but we know that we are just the group to continue the tradition. On Wednesday, December 21st, we will have the opportunity to celebrate the Winter Solstice, together, as a collective outdoor community. The Winter Solstice (also known as the hibernal solstice) is a special day for lovers of the changing seasons, and the ever-changing character of nature in general. It marks the longest day of darkness in the year. Or, depending on how you look at it, the shortest day of light.
However you choose to view it, it’s a special day that marks the turning point on the Earth’s journey around sun. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the days get shorter and shorter as darkness comes earlier and earlier in the day before the Winter Solstice. But after, light returns. Each day becomes progressively more filled with light, all the way through the Vernal Equinox, culminating it’s campaign with the Summer Solstice.
To celebrate the occasion, Fayettechill is doing it’s own countdown to the Winter Solstice, leading up to a special celebration on the 21st. Join in on the celebration with us by taking part in any of the below specials, or by simply spreading the news of the wonder that is the Winter Solstice. Take part in the grounding nature of the Winter Solstice, the slowness it invites into your personal life and community as a whole.
Use this time as a moment of personal suspension and reflection before the new year ahead. Celebrate the path of our planet, the axial shift orientation of our Earth that creates the beauty of four distinct seasons, and the special goldilocks position in the universe we all share that allows us to lead such vibrant and exciting lives.
The below products are available at one-day-only special pricing to help add some extra warmth to your personal outdoor clothing collection in anticipation of the Winter Solstice.*
*the listed specials are not available in conjunction with other active Fayettechill specials and promotions. You can only use one promotion code with each online purchase at any time. For example, you will not be able to use the “decembertee” special in conjunction with a Winter Solstice special.
