Winter Solstice Fire Challenge!!!


As we move towards Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere, I'm inviting everyone to join in a Winter Solstice Fire Challenge. The challenge is pretty simple but fun: every day between Winter Solstice and New Year's Day to spend some time around fire. This can be as simple as lighting a candle at night each night or making a fire in your fireplace or woodstove or even making a fire outside. I also encourage everyone who does the fire challenge to make at least two fires during that time. Share your experience here in the comments section, on social media with the hashtag #solsticefire or wherever you feel called.


I'd love to hear your stories!
