The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year. Where I live in Michigan, there are only 9 daylight hours on Winter Solstice. The days can definitely seem short, and sometimes dreary.
Many cultures celebrate the shortest day of the year, the Winter Solstice, in anticipation of every new day having longer daylight hours. Many of these celebrations include light in the darkness. Celebrate the coming of longer days at your household with a winter bonfire and S’mores!
What you need:
a fireplace, outdoor fire pit, or outdoor barbecue
sticks or metal pokers
What you do:
Safely make your bonfire and let burn until there are some warm coals.
Roast your marshmallow over the coals on the sticks.
Sandwich the marshmallow between two graham crackers with a slice of chocolate.
