That works for me. The triumph of light of darkness is suitably
symbolic of the triumph of knowledge over ignorance, life over
death. Next year it will be official: the Virus winter solstice
celebration will be a 5 day festival lasting from Dec.21-26.
That will give us another 5 days to recover in time for the New
Year's Eve party.

Now, can anyone think of a good reason (rationalization) to hold
another 5 day festival around the summer solstice?
