Happy Sol Invictus

Today is the darkest day of the year.
That means that, after today, the days get longer again.
Pagans used to celebrate this winter solstice
 by lighting candles, fires and lanterns.

I always like to stop and reflect on this day.
To me,  it signifies a new (astronomical) year,
another chance for dreams and wishes.

However, not only does it marks the return of the sun.
It also means that
WINTER HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED!

We have not had much winter yet,
with hardly any snow on the ground and temperatures shifting between -5 and + 5 C.

However, all this can still change!

Have a Happy Sol Invictus.
