Alderwoman Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth of the 48th Ward joined our seniors to celebrate a special winter solstice luncheon at the South-East Asia Center Golden Diners Program. Attendees with birthdays in December were also recognized.
Winter solstice, December 22nd this year, is the day with the shortest period of daylight and occurs when the Earth reaches its maximum tilt away from the Sun. Many cultures and religions have celebrations at this time.
