Pagan Eye: A Candle Burning for the Winter Solstice

Here's a photo of a candle burning on my Goddess altar yesterday for the Winter Solstice. It is one I had been saving for a special occasion.

It was a Marks and Spencer candle with gold glitter and I bought it a long while ago, before I realised just how bad glitter is for the environment. I won't buy any more glittery candles, but it is worse from a sustainability point of view to throw a thing away without using it up. I lit the candle not at a time of absolute joy, but when things were not going perfectly. I blogged about that the other day. This morning, before sunrise I lit other candles for the God and Goddess and gave thanks for the rebirth of the sun, and the glimmer of light it offers us when things seem bleak.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. It could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
