Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, Deep River, CT

December 24, 2011

The winter solstice, or the “return of the light”,  has been celebrated across the globe from time immemorial.  Christmas Day, the annual observance of the birth of Jesus Christ, is generally believed to have borrowed heavily from those earlier solstice traditions. The candlelight service here is at the Deep River Congregational Church.
