4 Winter Solstice Rituals From Around the World

Thousands of people around the globe will herald the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, with centuries-old rituals like soaking in fruit-filled baths and dressing up as a devilish folklore legend that punishes naughty children around Christmas.

The solstice, which falls on Dec. 21 this year, marks the first day of winter. It starts the moment the Northern Hemisphere is pointed at its farthest distance from the sun. The winter solstice is considered a turning point in the year in many cultures. The sacred day is also called Yule to pagans celebrating the birth of the new solar year, according to Circle Sanctuary, a prominent pagan group in America. Dozens of pagans and druids head to Stonehenge, an iconic site in England, to pay tribute to the sun during the solstice.

You can now see the winter solstice at Newgrange without a ticket

MORE PEOPLE THAN ever before will be able to see the winter solstice at Newgrange this year as it’s set to be streamed live.
Every morning on the winter solstice, sunlight floods the inner chamber of the passage tomb in Meath.
Newgrange is generally believed to date from the Neolithic period around 5,000 years ago.
The first modern observation of the sun shining into the inner chamber on the day of the winter solstice happened in December 1967.
This year, on Wednesday and Thursday morning, there will be a live stream as the inner chamber lights up. The stream will take place at 8.30am on both days.
