The Andean-Amazonic New Year (Spanish: Año Nuevo Andino Amazónico; Aymara: Willka Kuti or Return of the Sun) is a national holiday in Bolivia which celebrates the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere on June 21 as the Aymara New Year. It was declared a national holiday in Bolivia for the first time in 2010 by the government of Evo Morales, despite opposition from the Christian right in Bolivia. 

The ceremony includes chants, rituals and offerings to the sun and to the Pachamama to assure prosperity and fecundity the rituals are a remembrance of the ancient aymara communities practice.

The Amautas (Andean priests) celebrate a gratitude ceremonies to the Sun and the Pachamama (mother earth) for the crops received to feed their people this celebrations are perfectly integrated to the Bolivian culture and starts with the first sunlight sparks on June 21st , the light inspires the hope of a unity between the Universe and our hearts, that provides joy in life in the sacred journey.

The winter solstice takes place in Tiwanaku Town, every June 21st, this date marks the Aymara New Year or Machaj Mara; it also marks the beginning of a new agriculture year.
The winter solstice indicates that the earth is in its farthest point from the sun.
