Celebrate the winter solstice!

Today is the shortest day of the year and one day of the long Finnish winter to celebrate besides Christmas coz from this day onwards until the summer solstice the days start to get longer.



The above photo was taken this day last year at mid-day. CELEBRATE THE WINTER SOLSTICE!!!

Winter - the name alone makes me

At least it means Spring is next

Poor winter... gets such a bad rap. I know dealing with snow & ice, etc. is a pain in the neck, but I'll take cold weather over hot weather any day. You can always put on more clothes or another blanket to keep warm -- you can only get so naked, though, and you'll STILL be roasting!

Anyway, Happy Winter Solstice to all you pagan-types!!

The only thing I really don't like about the winter are the short days that's why we celebrate the winter solstice. And start to look forward to summer. The photo is of "our" lake.

Here's hoping in snows and snows and snows. To those people that don't like winter, get out there and ski, skate, snowshoe...you won't despise winter after you do!

I prefer summer over winter any time. I love to be outdoors working in my garden, and going for long walks.
