The winter solstice is almost here, and the rebirth of the light is what I celebrate deep in my heart. Soon the sun will remain above the horizon a little longer each day in the northern hemisphere. The light returns slowly. I gladly receive it!
To welcome the light I decorate my home with a collection of paper ornaments I’ve made or received as presents over time. Origami stars, modular rings and wreaths add a festive holiday sparkle to my staircase.
In addition to these origami Christmas decorations I also place votive candles on each stair step inside glass containers which are in turn wrapped in folded paper. These little lamps are a joyful accent.
