Winter Solstice Celebration dinner

 

This is the pagan celebration of the longest night, shortest day, beginning of winter and birth of Mithra, the sun god, a virgin birth from goddess Anahita in Iran.  This tradition spread from Iran to Greece and Rome.  When Constantin, the Roman emperor became Christian he changed it to Christmas.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
