You don't have to be a pagan to celebrate the Solstice. For years I taught in an urban school district that included Protestants, Catholics, Jews and representatives of various other religious backgrounds. Every year, on the last day of school before the winter break, often the Solstice, we had an open house that started at sundown and lasted til whenever. We had Christmas trees, evergreens, candles, mince pie, wassail, all Christmas, all Solstice.
