Quantum of Solstice… We explore the Winter Solstice Festival at both Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens + Roundhouse Community Centre

What do you do on the shortest day/longest night of the year?

December 21st…. and the city is being suffocated by blankets of snow.  Traffic is snarled to a halt – if people dare to go out.  Christmas shopping is threatened.

What do you do?

We went to see the James Bond movie, then mellowed by checkout the lantern procession at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens + the candle light labrynth at the Roundhouse Community Centre.

It was part of the 15th ANNUAL WINTER SOLSTICE LANTERN FESTIVAL 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. www.secretlantern.org
