    Winter Solstice

    Winter Solstice is one of my favorite days of the year. Not because we are going into winter, but because the daylight is starting to lengthen again. I always thought that saying, “the days are getting longer” is a misnomer because a day is still a day and will always last 24 hours. It is awkward to say, “we are gaining more (or less) daylight” so we default to, “the days are getting longer (or shorter)”. I think about day vs night and wonder what would it be like if the days were indeed getting longer. As it is, I feel like the years are flying so maybe the days…
