20.12/2012 -Time to celebrate the Winter Solstice Season -Its the beginning

Ivelina  —  December 20, 2012

Today is a special day.The day of the Winter Solstice marks the end of the “dark days “and the beginning of the “bright days”. I simply love the Sun and the beauty of the seasons never cease to amaze me. I know that my body is connected to the Sun in a unexplainable way as I feel this energy in myself ready for re-birth in the coming days.winter solstice

In Bulgaria , where I grew up, today is the beginning of the Christmas and New Year  celebrations. It is known as Игнажден -Ignagden , also known as “New Day” .Today is a particularly important day , as some people believe, that whatever happens today is a hint of what will be in the year ahead. There are a few superstitions, that bring a smile to my face. The first one is that is very important who enters your house today.They have to be well and also they have to wish you well, they have to be with full hands and also they are meant to come for a good reason. Now I am so lucky as we get today our vegetables delivered from the local organic farm………

The other superstition is that you must have money in your pocket all day long and under no circumstances lend people money, as its believed, that this will make you poor.

Also its believed, that women should stay away from too much house work , apart from cooking . Special bagels are made today for the each member of the family .There is nothing like getting together with your friends and family and celebrating life ,whatever the reason.

The origins of this celebration come from association with the  Sun, where all Bulgarian folklore takes inspiration and rituals.The fact is that from today the days will start to get bigger and the “brightness” is coming back.

Refreshed energies, new beginnings and abundance of inspiration. Let love and peace be your best advisers. Have a wonderful celebration with your loved ones .celebrate winter solstice

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Bulgaria (a small country in  Eastern Europe). I moved to Northern Ireland when I was 22 years old, full of hope, big dreams and an adventurous spirit. I am the mother of four wonderful boys and although I am very grateful for each lesson I've learned in my life, I wish that some things might have happened sooner, but everything has it’s place and everything that is  worthwhile is not always easy.  I want to connect with you. Get in touch.
