…and to all a good night

Friday, December 21 marked the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere; the longest night of the year. From here on out our days will get longer by more than 2 minutes a day until the summer solstice.  Sure, some boring dry facts, but isn’t it fascinating the length of daylight varies by more than 2 minutes per day? That those long winter nights we think of are actually getting shorter as we head towards spring….that I could keep going on, but I won’t. Happy holidays and to all a good night.
