This means that each day will have more daylight. Now you're talking. Then spring will be here and the world will awaken. My favorite time of the year.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

It's been so cold and dark it's hard to believe winter is just now arriving. I do look forward to longer days.

Winter solstice never meant much to me, until I realized I'll be driving home in daylight again.

Have a good weekend!

No idea what time it happens here. All I know is my state is supposed to hit a record high temperature this weekend. Yeah, really feels like Winter...

The sun is at its weakest today...yet there is just enough to allow for spidery shadows to show up nicely...Merry Christmas to you and Russell!

A happy day of short sunlight, but not as short as I thought it would be. Onward towards brighter days. Merry Christmas!

I like the solstice because it means that every day is closer to summer...

Suzy said...

And here in NZ it was the longest day and shortest night which means days here are now getting shorter :( Thanks for dropping by my blog.
