Each year the children of Chintsa gather together to celebrate the Winter Solstice.
Local teachers help little hands to craft colourful lanterns and these are lit as the moon begins to rise.
Together, lanterns as a guide – they walk around the park together singing into the starry sky.
A simple celebration led by soulful folk with warm hearts.
An experience lacking in hype but running deep in richness and meaning.
A celebration of simple blessings – the passing of time, candle light, children’s voices, crisp winter air….
