Join hands and dance in a sacred circle to welcome the Solstice! This year two local groups—in Framingham on Sunday December 15 and Cambridge on Thursday December 19—will lead dances of light to brighten and honor the longest night of the year. No experience or partner is required, and everyone is welcome. Both take place in handicapped-accessible halls.

  • UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED DUE TO SNOW. IT WILL NOW BE ON SUNDAY DECEMBER 22. Sunday December 15, 6:00 to 8:30 pm; Scott Hall of First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, 24 Vernon Street, Framingham MA. $5 to $10 donation appreciated if you can. Wear all white clothing and bring a contribution for a potluck of dessert finger food. Some live music! “As we move inward towards the darkness, we replenish our inner light in the circle to carry us brilliantly through the winter,” say Michael and Tai Summers-McGuinness, who lead the circle.

  • Thursday December 19, 7:45 to 9:30 pm; top floor of First Parish Unitarian Universalist, 3 Church Street, Harvard Square in Cambridge MA. No donation requested. Wear a white top and light-colored pants or skirt. “The winter holy-day is a sacred time when the world once again recognizes the centrality of love, as represented by light in darkness. We dance with candles to celebrate this Light-Love and invite it into our hearts,” says Merry Henn-Lecordier, who co-leads with Kaeza Fearn. For more information, contact Ms. Henn-Lecordier at
