When do you celebrate? I have heard many different opinions on timing, I am curious to hear what you do & why you chose that timing. Of course work/school and other issues can play into it, but provided there is nothing restricting your timing, when do you celebrate? Assuming the solstice falls on Dec. 21st for a year...Sunrise on the 21st, or with the sunrise of the reborn sun on the 22nd? Sunset on the 20th or 21st? Dinner time on the 21st? All day long from the time you get up until the time you go to bed? Late at night on one of the days?Answer Question
I asked this the other day. Here is what we do in my home.

In my family I have a ritual for myself (as the only Neopagan in the house) on the night of the shortest day that is a sort of farewell to the sun of that year which is giving its last gasp. The next morning we watch the sunrise as a family, exchange gifts & have a breakfast feast. Last year my daughter was in her first year of Latin so we also celebrated Saturnalia, that was great & I think we will continue to do that.
