25 Songs of Christmas: Day 21-

Earlier this season I did a post about the way so many people of faith celebrate  “the light” through an array of holidays this time of year.  Today is another one of those holidays.  Solstice is the shortest day of the year and is celebrated as marking “the return of the light.” From today forward each day will get a little longer and bring a little bit more light.  Solstice is a sort of “It gets better” nature style.  As I ponder the coming light and all it means to people of all faiths, I am once again reminded of all the ideal we share.  Peace, love, generosity, caring for those around us, and having faith in something bigger than any one of us.

Today’s song blog isn’t specifically a Christmas song, but I think it certainly encapsulates the ideals all people are called to strive toward as we try to bring a little more light to the world around us.
