I was in full snow queen costume with my friends from the Hamilton Aerial Group in Corktown Park, Hamilton, and it was a truly wonderful event! We followed up our solstice celebrations with an appearance at the Bee Ball in the Mule Spinner at the Cotton Factory later that night! What an amazing way to start off the holidays!
I hope to do many more stilt performances and events in 2019!
Many people around the world celebrate festivals of lights during this time of year. The days get shorter until shortest day and longest night on winter solstice. Every day after the solstice will get a little longer and cultures from time immemorial have been celebrating the return of the sun and light. Many cultures, at this dark time of the year use lights to brighten up the long nights.
