The longest night of the year, winter solstice takes place on Saturday, December 21; this darkness is marked by a movement towards the lengthening of days and journey towards spring. Every year Bethlehem Centre marks the occasion with a free (by donation) slate of evening events designed for all ages. This year’s event is themed around ‘hygge’ (pronounced hoo-ga), the Scandinavian term for “creating cozy and convivial atmospheres that promote well-being”. The Centre is creating this atmosphere by inviting visitors to walk the only labyrinth in Nanaimo, which will be bathed in the tranquil glow of candle-lit lanterns.
