Today is the darkest day of the year, the longest night, the Winter Solstice, and while humanity may not agree on what religion is right or how to wish each other a holiday greeting during the coldest months in the Northern Hemisphere, we can agree on at least one thing: we all love coffee. So, no matter what tradition you hold, brew a cup of good brew, gather with loved ones, and stay warm.
The days can only get longer, the nights shorter from here on out. It is no wonder so many of us mark this transition into winter with ceremony, even a ceremony none of us probably realize consciously. Year after year, the trend shows an uptick in coffee consumption universally during the winter, showing that we all feel the same.
Brew Your Favorite Winter Coffee and Get Cozy
Coffee makes as great a gift as it does a supplement to the winter doldrums. It brings us together, puts a smile on our faces, and adds cheer to our voices. Coffee brings us out of our shell and warms us when we are cold. Coffee makes conversation and conversation build community, care, and comfort. Coffee can uplift a downturned spirit or awake a slumbering awareness.
What could possibly be better on this, the darkest day of the year?
Coffee picks us up and sends us forth with renewed vigor as we approach the New Year. It sets the mind abuzz with visions of potential, of hope, and of the goals possible in the seasons ahead.
This is why we are coffee people and why we love our coffee community, so we here at CoffeeForLess wish you all the best and the boldest this coffee season. ;)
