solstice

If you live in the northern hemisphere today is the winter solstice. The shortest day of the year. From tomorrow onwards the days begin to get longer, though you can’t really tell until mid-end of February, when the dark really begins to lift.

Officially today is the actual beginning of winter, but that’s daft. Today is midwinter. Christmas itself, as much as I love the whole thing, is the grafting-on of a Christian festival to an ancient pagan festival celebrating midwinter.

Either way, today is the shortest day of the year, and the day after tomorrow is my birthday. Then Christmas.

All good.
