It's the shortest day of the year, or the longest night depending on how you look at it. I like this day because it only gets lighter from here on out, a couple minutes each day and before long it's still light when I get home from work. Pretty soon the sun will be up before I get out of bed, so no more sunrise photos and more sunsets. Even though it is the first day of winter and there is a lot of winter left it still seems to me that it won't last long, I must be nuts because it can still last 3 more months but still the days are numbered. So on this longest night of the year, i am going to cuddle up with the dogs, have some tea then go to bed and enjoy the dark.
