Happy Solstice to you all. The shortest day of the year has arrived for me, but depending on your time zone the Winter Solstice might be on the 22nd. The longest night could be worse. If you live in the northern polar regions, you'll be getting 24 hours of night for the Winter Solstice. You all know I'm a sunshine, warm weather loving kind of gal so I'll be glad to see the days getting longer. We've had endless days of clouds and gloomy weather here though the temperatures have been mild until the last few days. And warm is coming back around for Christmas. So no white Christmas this year.
I have a hundred more things to get done before Christmas though we did finally get the tree up on Sunday night. It looks lovely. The gifts for Christmas Eve with the family are already nestled beneath the boughs. Still lots to do before that day gets here.
Some men, if they have twice as much to do, will do it twice as well.
The Old Farmer's Almanac, 1902
Christmas Day will be a full moon. I don't know what that means but it should mean something. Hopefully, it doesn't mean anything crazy will happen today unless the craziness is that peace on Earth breaks out.

I won't be posting on Wednesday but I'll be back next Monday. Please stop by IWSG today for my last post of the year on that site.
And some useless trivia from the Old Farmer's Almanac: A Saint Bernard can make its way through snow as deep as 15 feet.
And in case the season brings out the Scrooge in you: Santa Claus has the right idea...visit people only once per year. Victor Borge
I wish you all the very best and Merriest Christmas. Hope you all are safe and loved this holiday.
