Learn more about the first day of winter here.
the time frame of October to about February is a bad time for me for the sun sets to soon for me. the short days make me depressed & it sometimes gets to the point where I am hard to live with. I wish I could just hibernate like many animals do.
A lot of us have trouble in the winter due to the lack of sun. I have begun to take vitamin D
supplements in the winter as we tend to lack in D the most in the winter I hope this helps.
I look forward to the first day of winter beacuse the days start getting longer again and by january 1 a minute a day longer the shortest sunsets are over by december 15
I love the WInter Solstice as it is my birthday!!
Well Happy Birthday! (On Friday.)
I live in North Florida so I look forward to Fall and Winter weather after the hot summer weather that can last 9 months or more in my region. I love the crispness in the air and I feel exhilerated and just want to be outside. It's still in the 70's in the afternoons here, a cool snap would be welcome
Oh is that right..call me you can come to my NorCal location..and I will go to your location... any day!
My ongoing project is to document 'Il tempo grigio' (It. the gray time) where the forces of gray encroach upon us starting late in November and lasting sometimes through March. It is the time of holding-on; of sheltering against the cold; of colorless drab misty days; of rising expectations.
The cold days and the pretty coats, hats and the holidays the food and visits with friends.But most of all the time we set aside to celebrate the brith of Christ and the reason for coming.
Amen to that! It's too bad that Christians can't be as proud and vocal about our faith as other religions. This is the time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, what a glorious time of year.
