Winter Solstice

If you're in the northern hemisphere, today is the winter solstice (well actually this year it's tomorrow but we can't be changing our calendars every year for astronomical reasons, can we?)

By any means, Winter starts. The sun will travel through it's lowest arch in the sky, it will be the shortest day and the longest night, all that. If it's snowing where you live, go and have fun!

If you live in the southern hemisphere, well, reverse all I've said and happy Summer!


  1. I love me some solstice. I can say it got dark exceptionally early today, and never really got fully light.

  2. The scenery in the picture is amazing.
    Winter's here, hooray! One of the best seasons.
    I want snow :(
