Saturnalia the Harvest Festival and the Winter Solstice
Happy Saturnalia Dec 17-Dec 21
Happy Winter Solstice
Thursday, December 21, 2017
The ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia began on December 17th and lasts for seven days in honor to the god of seed-sowing and wine, Saturn.
How to celebrate Saturnalia and the winter solstice
Wear the colors of the holiday-blue and gold. Decorate with holly. Event guest on the 17th and have a party-- don't forget the cookies and wine and give presents. Make an altar with a picture of statue of Saturn.
