It might seem silly, but this week is one of my favorite weeks of the year, and not just because it's Christmas. At 12:47 PM yesterday afternoon, we reached the winter solstice for 2009. This marks the shortest "day" of the year...actually the day with the fewest hours of daylight.
Why do I celebrate?
Because the days will now be getting longer for the next six months. Now that's something to cheer about!
Never a fan of these days that get dark so early, I had to give a shout out to the day when things, once again, turn in the right direction!
