As I like to say, Freezin’ is the Reason for the Season!
Happy Winter Solstice! Today, December 21 (at 6:12 AM in the Eastern United States) is the solstice, marking the sun’s southern most position in the sky, making this the shortest day of the year.
It’s well known that many rituals and symbols now used in the celebration of Christmas were adopted from pagan celebrations of the solstice.
So: Happy Solstice!
