Welcome Yule!

MY Favorite Day of the Year.

Days start to get Longer.

The Winter Solstice, the SHORTEST DAY of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Evenings have ALREADY started to get longer — as of December 12, 2019!

It is sunrise that continues to be tardy.

Notice that sunrise does NOT get earlier following the Solstice!

If anything it continues to get later and later.

It is LATER SUNSETS that are making the daylight longer.

Sunrise does not start getting earlier until January.

Welcome Yule!

In the spirit of Revels I give YOU, in peace,
Dona Nobis Pacem‘ (Grant us peace)
for the Winter Solstice.
