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.

My FAVORITE day of the year.

I sulk during the Summer Solstice — because I understand, appreciate and live by what it all means.

As of the Summer Solstice days start getting SHORTER, immediately, until the Winter Solstice.

But, as of the Winter Solstice, tomorrow, days start getting LONGER. Rejoice.

So, may I be the first to wish you a Very Merry Winter Solstice.

Welcome Yule!

We turn the corner, Summer is on THE WAY.

Welcome YULE.

The Winter Solstice is tonight for us in New England.

IF you are TRULY ‘in-tune’ YOU will feel IT.
The slight ‘jolt’ as the Earth turns the corner.
