WhooHoo!! My most favorite day of the year.
The shortest daylight of the year.
Here in mid-North America, we spend much of today in twilight.
Maybe you weren’t aware there are 3 types of twilight.
Civil Twilight: This is the brightest form. It’s light enough you can see to do outside chores.
Nautical Twilight: This dates back to the time when sailors used the stars to navigate the seas. During this time, bright stars can be easily seen with naked eyes.
Astronomical Twilight: The sky is no longer illuminated by the sun. All stars can be seen.
There were less than 9 hours of daylight today….
But that’s okay…
The Earth is now tilting back the other way. (Sorry Australia).
We’re headed back into the light.
We’ve come through the night.
Perhaps through the long darkness you found comfort by giving, sharing, and supporting each other. Bless you.
Take heart and continue your kindnesses.
Light is ahead.
Merry Christmas, my friends!!
(To my friends in Oz…you know I love you, but WhooHoo! It’s our turn to head into the light!)
