Winter solstice. This is defined as the shortest day of the year due to the sun's position relative to the earth. For the northern hemisphere, the date falls on Wednesday, December 21st, at 4:48 pm EST. (For our members who live in the southern hemisphere and are celebrating the longest day of the year, or summer solstice, you can tuck this recipe away until mid-June).

One of the fun traditions my family celebrates on this day is to welcome the return of the sun by making Yule Sun Cider. This celebratory drink represents the warmth of the sun lacking on this darkest day and invites the hope that the longer days of sunlight ahead will continue to bring warmth and balance.
