A Winter Celebration
One of the things we learned about our planet is that it travels around the sun.
That journey takes one full year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days.
It was perfect being in the middle of a unit on Space this time of year.
Wonderful connections to be made .
The Earth tilting on its axis as it makes its way around the sun takes us
just a little bit further from its warmth, giving us Winter.
The Winter Solstice is a celebration of the shortest day of the year because we know longer days will follow as the earth tilts us back toward its warm glow.
We celebrate the life that the coming warmth will bring.
No matter what we believe during this season, no matter what truths we hold in our hearts ultimately we are celebrating the same thing, the return of the light, new growth and birth.
The children made beautiful gifts, twinkling star cards and sweet twig stars wrapped in colored embroidery floss bringing messages of love.
Wishing our Imagine families much warmth and love
and a most fantastic New Year!
