Central Ohio Winter Solstice 2010

by Maureen McCabe on December 17, 2010

On Facebook yesterday I asked about 2010 Central Ohio Solstice Celebrations on the ’365 Things to Do in Columbus Ohio’ page on Facebook?   The universe answered.  Or someone from Central Ohio did. Thanks Aeryn Musick! See Sunday event in Clintonvile below.

Meredith Heagney’s  ‘Faith and Values’ column in the Columbus Dispatch has an article about  Central Ohio Winter Solstice that answers it too! The article titled

”Out of the darkness and into the light’

about the Winter Solstice has Central Ohio Winter Solstice 2010 events. Some Central Ohio Christian churches acknowledge the day.  Other churches prefer not to, according to Heagney.

Do you know December 21, 2010 is a special Winter Solstice?

All times in the video are Central Standard Time.  Thanks to my friend Cheryl Johnson who shared the video with me, and you. Cheryl in southern California commented about the  2010 Winter Solstice.

“It gives me a strange chill to think that this event is almost as remarkable as the conjunction of planets that the Biblical Magi followed….”

“Three Cranes Grove, ADF, would like to invite you to celebrate the Winter Solstice on Sunday, December 19th at the Reservable  Shelter house at Whetstone Park! Directions may be found below.

This will be an afternoon ritual, with social time at 3 PM and our ritual at 3:30 PM. We will not have our usual potluck following the rite due to time constraints at the site.

Please note that this rite is indoors, but it can be chilly.

Please also bring a new, unwrapped toy for local donation.

“But some Christians avoid solstice celebrations because of their association with paganism and other earth-based religions.”
