Today was the shortest day. The sun rose at 8.18am, and set at 4.22pm. This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the winter solstice with stories and things to do (like measuring the length of your shadow at noon, amongst other things).
And it reminds us to celebrate the shortest day because longer days will follow.
And as the light slowly returns it's a time for new beginnings.
And I like that, don't you?
So happy solstice, whether you're celebrating the shortest day or the longest day.
