The Solstice Approaches December 20, 2015

Filed under: Solstice,Winter Solstice — Janet @ 4:21 pm

The hours between sunrise and sunset are almost about to increase. Soon there will be more daylight.  We are poised.  I am ready.  The exact date and time of the 2015 solstice here in Seattle is December 21 at 20:48.   Only a few hours from now as I write this.   It always seems to me that we reach a plateau at this time of year and almost even go backwards, depending on the weather I suppose.  It is not until about mid-January that the days seem to significantly lengthen.

 

Below is my advent calendar. How about a calendar for the solstice?
