Winter Solstice

Christmas could not have taken place until
after Christ was born. Since Tolkien wrote
the LOTR as a prehistory of Great Britain,
taking place probably 7,000 or more years in
the past, they could not have celebrated
Christmas. All cultures celebrate the end of
winter and the beginning of spring, and it does not take too many years of record keeping to
enable one to predict when the end of winter
is (mid-winter) "when the days begin to be
shorter".

Still, this was a very delightful and
warm-hearted celebration. Thank you!

Delightful scenes. Well written!

Although, truth be told, spices, almonds,
pears, and other such delights were not
available until thousands of years later.
Marco Polo went to China about 1350 I think.
Not sure when England received spices.
