Today is the shortest day of the year, and the longest night.
Up here in the Northern plains, we’ve been having some unseasonably warm weather, with temps running from the high 20s to the low 40s (meaning snow melting!) I’m tickled about this fact, but my kids would rather have the whole “White Christmas” thing. I told them we have the movie, we can pretend. (They didn’t go for that very well, ingrates! Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye should mean something, danggit!)
I’m still working on crafts for holiday presents… and yes, we will be going to my parents’ house for Christmas get-together. Most of the rest of my family is Christian, so we celebrate with them, and I celebrate on my own (or with chosen pagan family) for Yule.
May your days be bright and warm, may your nights be full of wonderful dreams, and may your holidays be filled with laughter, love and light!
