Winter Solstice Celebration, Dublin – Dublin 21

And so we approach the shortest day of the year, the longest night, the Winter Solstice. In Pagan times this was traditionally one of the most important and sacred occasions in the calendar. It was a time to come together and celebrate and use natural energies to counter the spirit-numbing effects of the darkest days of the year.
This year on Dec 21 (6.30-8.30pm) a wonderfully eclectic group will gather at The Complex in the heart of Dublin’s old market centre, Smithfield Square, to celebrate the Winter Solstice. This will be an ancient celebration in tune with ancestral traditions, blending ceremonies inclusive of all peoples with feasting, trading, entertainment and community. There will be “warming food and drinks, storytelling and music, traditional inclusive Solstice ceremony, seasonal gifts, joyful craic and humour for the days of light ahead”. No cover charge!
