Paul Winter Winter Solstice

In Wiccan tradition, people stay awake on Winter Solstice to sing and cleanse and watch over the sleeping Sun as he regenerates within their safe croons and arms till the following morning when his strength is restored. In subsequent days, Sun shines brighter and longer till Summer Solstice, after which he continues to weaken until once more watched over as he sleeps through the longest night of the year.
