Well as far as seasons go on this December 21st, the Earth begins it’s tilt back toward the Sun!
… But I guess that’s only true for all of us lucky enough to be in the northern hemisphere. For everybody else, you’re heading away to your “winter”, whatever that is for you. For us in Canada, it’s a shatload of snow, and it was -41C for the temperature here earlier this week, and my car doesn’t have a block heater, but it still muscled through!
I kind of wish we had some type of celebration for the solstice, along with the summer solstice (which I actually did one year!). Not like they did back in Stonehenge days I’ll bet though. I don’t know much about Stonehenge, which maybe I’ll read up on one day, but I’m pretty sure the solstices (solsti?) and equinoxes were wicked important! Any thoughts…? Wow, I’m way too ‘tired’ to post… damn these holiday drinks!
P.S. Technically it’s 12:02am on the 22nd when I finished this post… *sigh* I tried.
