In ancient times the Romans celebrated the return of the sun with Saturnalia. There was all manner of feasting and revelry, with slaves taking the roles of their masters for a night.

Past the solstice, as the days become incrementally longer and it becomes clear the world won’t sink into the edge of night, perhaps flowers party too. I already know that flowers dream. Let’s call their festival flowernalia.
