Winter Solstice

So when I got to work this morning, my judge announced that today is the shortest day of the year. It's winter solstice. How depressing, right? WRONG. I was actually pretty excited. Because to me it means one thing...........the days are starting to get longer!!!!!!

Not that we've had an awful winter or anything.....or that winter has actually even started for that matter. But it just got me kinda excited. So I thought I'd pass it on!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

ps - winter solstice always reminds me of my Grandpa Keith, my only grandpa I never met. he married my grandma on this day because it's the longest night of the year. :) that man was thinking!!! hehe.

Glad to know I am not the only one that got excited about the shortest day of the year! It only gets lighter from here on out!! Yippee!! :)

Everything you said about Grandpa Keith is correct, but its very likely that earth science wasn't his strong suit ~ their actual wedding date was Dec 28, therefore I usually remember him on both the 21st (longest night) & the 28th (anniversary) :)
