Since the earliest days, people have created traditions and festivals around the natural rhythms and seasons of the earth. The winter solstice has long been a time for sharing food, music, and stories of the passing year and hopes for the future. On Sunday, December 17, 2017, the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island invites you (and your friends) to celebrate our Winter Festival by joining us on a journey from light to darkness and back to light, through music, art and literature. Come and revel in our celebration of axial tilt and orbital mechanics!!!
