Dear Almanac readers,
Today, it's all about the lights—in the night sky and on this Earth!
Are you a sky watcher? This evening, the year's best meteor shower meets the year's brightest full Moon.
Ever heard of St. Lucia's Day—or, the "Festival of Lights"? Learn about St. Lucy and try baking some delicious St. Lucia Buns.
In our minds, the brightest stars are you, Almanac readers! Lest you think we exaggerate, listen to this: Over the fall, we asked, "What Does the Almanac Mean to You?" The responses were amazing, and you can read them below! We treasure these words, and hope that you will enjoy them, too.
