Lets please start today the way I mean to carry on.
My favorite day of the Year, as THE committed Sun Worshipper I have always been
— as my year long tan amply testifies.
Revels is all about today, the solstice.
So, let us take a second to pay homage to Revels …
Now, per the Revels tradition let us all listen to this Yule, Sol Invictus, invocation
— and be refreshed and rejuvenated.
Days are getting longer. That is without doubt or debate.
I talked about this, at length, in this post. Please check it out.
On Boxing Day, a wonderful holiday, actually a Holy-Day, we have ONE FULL MINUTES of additional daylight.
By New Year’s Eve the days will be 3 minutes longer.
Check out this table from our wonderful U.S. Naval Observatory.
See how the daylight hours increase, month to month, till June
— and this is for Concord, New Hamphsire
Just for the record, today, December 21, 2013, we get 8:59 hours of daylight.
So just in a month we will be getting over 1/2 hour more.
Happiest Day of the Year.
