Just a reminder…

Today is the winter solstice.

You know what’s coming.

    Good thing Jesus happened to be born immediately after the Winter Solstice!

    • I thought it was Santa’s birthday.

        Unlike Ramadan, which is celebrating Satan’s birthday.

      It’s nine months after the Annunciation etc.:

        Makes sense, I guess it explains why Christmas might not be on the Winter Solstice itself, although that could be really to keep it deliberately seperate but very close.

        I know I should have paid more attention in Sunday School, but the references you gave me don’t show the exact date except for some guesses and some christian scholars belief because “Both works tie the idea that Jesus’s death would have happened on the same day as his conception.”

    Days begin to get longer, phew.

      Unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere!

    Obviously that photo represents days never to be seen again. Thanks to man-made global warming I’ll be celebrating Christmas on the deck with barbecue and mojitos in beautiful southern Ontario.

      I’m looking into a vacation home on Baffin Island… Algore has really scared me.

        Be certain to choose high ground because the oceans will rise ten metres or more.

    Damn global warming, just not what it’s cracked up to be.
