As an Alaskan, I hail this day with delight and excitement. December 21 is a true reason to throw a party, even if we never did. Yes, the temps will be dropping into the below zero double digits, but the days are getting longer!!!!! I love this day more than any other day this month. Daylight is such a blessing, one can never have enough of it! Darkness is nice. Many things can only happen in the black hours of a day. However, I am one for light.
Today, I am blessed by the coming hours of sunlight. Second by second, the time will mount up til June when it tumbles once more.
