Ain’t no sunshine
Ah, winter. It’s dark when we wake and dark when many of us head home from work. It’s enough to make a Californian pack up and move to the Southern hemisphere! Before taking such drastic measures, though, we must pause to remember that Saturday is winter solstice, the longest night of the year. Each day after, the sun will stay with us a little longer until summer is inevitable. So, how about attending the Renaissance Solstice Celebration to get through that last long night? There’s a dinner (vegetarian or meat options available) followed by a celebration including a candlelight procession and the music of Randy Parris. Costumes (Renaissance-oriented or otherwise) are encouraged. Dinner begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday and costs $15. The celebration will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Society, at 2425 Sierra Boulevard. Call 455-3401 for dinner reservations.
