So, tonight’s the night… winter solstice. The shortest day and longest night of the year, and the turning point of the year after which it will start brightening up again. I don’t celebrate Christmas in the religious sense - don’t and cannot believe in the unlikely fairy tales which I had indoctrinated into me as a child by religion, and would now call myself an atheist - but I’ll go with the baby cheeses everyone is wittering about!
I celebrate Solstice, purely because it’s the return of the light after a long dark spell, and as such should be something to celebrate with fire, lights, sparkly things and food. Onward and upwards, and the best 2019 to everyone!
