I don’t much care for winter. It’s not the cold (though that’s no fun), and it’s not the snow, it’s the lack of daylight. The days that don’t get bright until 7:30 and get dim again at 4:30. I just can’t handle that little light. So, celebrate, my fellow seasonally-affected folks, for today is the shortest day of the year. At just 9.4 hours of daylight, we’re won’t see a day this short for another year. It’s a long way back to 12 hours, yes, but each day gives us valuable seconds and minutes of daylight that will brighten our souls and lives.
