Today
10 hours and 48 minutes of Daylight.


IF you live in New Hampshire I hope (I really do) that this has NOT escaped you.

It is so obvious and, moreover, WONDERFUL.

It is still light at 5:30 in the evening. Heaven!

I love it. I am a Sun Worshipper as my TAN testifies.

Enjoy.

It will keep on getting better until that DREADED, horrible day in June when winter turns the corner!

Welcome Yule!

MY Favorite Day of the Year.

Days start to get Longer.

The Winter Solstice, the SHORTEST DAY of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Evenings have ALREADY started to get longer — as of December 12, 2019!

It is sunrise that continues to be tardy.

Notice that sunrise does NOT get earlier following the Solstice!

If anything it continues to get later and later.

It is LATER SUNSETS that are making the daylight longer.

Sunrise does not start getting earlier until January.

Welcome Yule!


In the spirit of Revels I give YOU, in peace,
Dona Nobis Pacem‘ (Grant us peace)
for the Winter Solstice.

Winter Solstice 2019 Is A Month Away And I Persevere With My One-Man Defiance Of Winter Darkness.

From 2-years ago.


I will NOT let winter darkness get the better of I. I will prevail. I will defy the darkness, spit on it.

The Winter Solstice, my FAVORITE DAY of the year, is just over a month away.

Yes, the Revels are nearly here to help herald in the momentous day. Yes, of course we are going. Haven’t missed a Revels in decades.

So, I, with the help of rechargeable batteries, prove to the world that darkness can be kept at Bay.

Let there be LIGHT.
