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?
