Winter Solstice at Newgrange
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Newgrange is an ancient Irish passage tomb. It was built during the Neolithic age, around 3200 BC. Making it older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Giza.
The tomb was designed to showcase the Winter Solstice. As the sun rises on the shortest day of the year, the light appears through a narrow slot at the entrance. This light travels along the 60 foot long tunnel and illuminates the middle chamber.
The Winter Solstice is a time of quiet energy. Time to reflect and release the past. To concentrate on making positive changes.

Celtic Eternity Knot – Love Knot
The Celtic Eternity Knot is also know as the Love Knot. The intertwining loops have no start or finish and so symbolises everlasting. This represents unity, faith, friendship and love between two people. Where the knot crosses symbolises the unity and wisdom of the couple.
