Okay, this is kind of cool: The Pagan observance, the Yule Feast, which some believe is the origin of the December date of Christmas, dates back thousands of years and coincides with the Winter Solstice. Originally, it was believed that the Sun King was reborn every year on this day, after dying off in the fall.
There are those in Orlando who revel in this tradition, and Dandelion Communitea Cafe is holding a special feast just for tonight.
And, to make the night even more special, this evening features a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, visible in its entirety, and only aligns with a Solstice every 100+ years. (Almost 400 years since visible in Florida!) So, the Florida School of Holistic Living will be hosting a celebratory rhythm circle in the garden that will go into the night (until 3 am).
Sounds kind of neat, huh?
