Winter Solstice

Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.
Of course, that’s not the actual definition of the Winter Solstice. The actual solstice revolves around the oblique angle of the Sun to the ecliptic.
An article in the Washington Post explains it all.
Here in Minnesota, the daylight today is less than 8 and a half hours long.
But then, I enjoyed the long summer solstice here (nearly 16 hours of daylight), so this is retribution.
And to those pagan friends of mine…I wish you well on this holiday.
