Winter Solstice

Welcome to the first day of winter. I think we should celebrate its arrival the way we celebrate all the other seasons. Winter certainly serves its purpose. It kills bacteria and bugs so we aren’t infested. It sends us inside to spend time with loved ones. It freshens the air, darkens the sky, and without winter we wouldn’t have such an appreciation for all the other seasons.

Below is a silly little video / winter solstice poem, and below that is a time lapsed video of last night’s winter solstice lunar eclipse. The season is magic already!
