The cosiest season is upon us. Snow has fallen and Christmas is coming. With winter comes shorter days, long nights and the perfect atmosphere to make the most of home. The winter solstice, or midwinter, is the shortest day of the year, and is responsible for the humble beginnings of the Christmas tree. After December 21st, the days get longer and we move from winter chill into spring. In many cultures, this is a day of celebration, read more to see our four small ways to embrace the solstice.

light some candles //

The darkness outside makes every home a haven of warmth and light. The simple act of lighting candles creates an atmosphere of coziness and relaxation. Dot candles around the home and appreciate the flicker of the flame in the late afternoon. Paired with your favourite slippers and a good playlist, you'll wish the solstice came more than once a year.

For those determined to get outside, whatever the weather. The shortest day of all makes makes great viewing of both the sunrise and sunset. Find a vantage point with a view both east and west to fully appreciate the glory of the sun low in the sky. In the cold weather, the popular walks become less frequented, so you can absorb the tranquility all for yourself.

This time of year can be a busy one, and not everybody can take the luxury of a whole day's downtime. Making lists in your trusty notebook, mulling wine and wrapping presents can be just as cathartic on a dark, chilly winter's day. For those who aren't clamouring to get their tree up on the first day of December, the winter solstice could be the perfect time to honour the Christmas tree tradition. With the sun long set, you'll feel ready and recharged for the holidays ahead.

Snow days, Christmas Eve, long duvet days. Few days in the year do we allow ourselves the luxury of lazing at home, with a fire or soft blanket. For a homebody, this is the ideal excuse. Stock up on tasty food, be sure to have a book to hand and let the sun come up and down in no time at all. A day entirely for you in the warmth and comfort of home.
