Winter Solstice, Merry Yule to you!!!

This is my second most favourite day of the year!!!

My favourite day being Beltaine, which is more commonly known as Halloween, even though in the southern hemiphere it is actually the equivalent to May Day in the northern hemisphere... But anyway, back to Yule, I love Yule!!!

We're not doing anything in particular to celebrate the day. There is a lovely gathering happening at Ceres, but I don't have the $15 or the transport I'd need to get there. So, instead it'll be a quiet (hahaha, yes, ok, probably not so quiet) hearty dinner at home...

I'm not a big fan of Winter, and even though today is the official seasonal (as opposed to erroneous calendar) start of Winter, I still love today, because today is also the longest, darkest day of the year, which means, by comparison, every other day is lighter and brighter and longer than today, rofl! The Sun is on his way back, whoo hoo!!!

Today was Luey's due date seven years ago! His birthday is the 25th, which was Erik's second due date, so birthday season really starts for me today, as well...

It's appropriately grey and overcast outside, and for once, I don't mind!!!

Hope everyone is stay snug and cosy by their fire today!!!
