Holiday Lights, Ivoryton, CT

December 7, 2017

At this time of the year, the town green in Ivoryton becomes, in the words of one local wag, “kinda like Las Vegas” (400,000 lights!!! the state’s largest living Christmas tree!!! etc. etc.) Here’s hoping they toned down the flashing lights this time around, but in any case, it’s magical and worth a trip.

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Merry Yule! Happy Solstice! Blessings for Everyone!

And a simple prayer for the season:

“Peace be unto all the world over, under Thy Will, O God.” (Guru Nanak, 1469-1539 AD)

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.
