COLUMBIA — Every year, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbia gathers together to celebrate the winter solstice. The festivities center around singing and dancing for the arrival of the sun.

The solstice occurs on Tuesday this year and is the shortest day of the year. The celebration was held on Friday so all ages could attend.

The gathering is a welcoming of the sun’s “early” arrival and the beginning of longer days. People of all ages come out for the celebration and many inhibitions are forgotten.
