Through ceremony, we reflect, remember and re-create our connection with the physical and non-physical environments and with each other. When ceremony meets tradition, our hearts erupt in silent fireworks. From dance and ritual on the Village Green through to the tiny flames we shelter together in the shared 3 Minutes of Silence on New Year’s Eve, to the great gathering at the Fire Event. Rituals and traditions give us moments that make us laugh, make us gasp, make us hold our breath, and might make us take each other’s hands for the coming year.
