Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year precedes the rebirth of daylight. For those of us that crave sunlight, the days and weeks leading up to the 21st / 22nd are a painful progression of increasing darkness. But, with the passing of the moment of Solstice, life takes on fresh feel as moment by moment, each day becomes slightly longer than the one preceding.
Christmas itself is only a couple of days away, and in no time it will be a new year. And by then, we’ll even be able to notice a light increase in the length of the days – something to really look forward to!
