Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Winter Solstice! 😀

I have always thought of Winter Solstice as the pinnacle of dark nights, after which the days grew longer and the nights shorter … until I read this interesting blog post today – I thought I’d share it with you:

The cycle of the seasons is something I feel very much drawn to as part of my keen interest in nature and the natural world. However, it was interesting to learn a little more about the astronomy behind the Winter Solstice.
