Since Sunday we’ve got a little dust of white. Still remains to be seen whether it will stay for Christmas or not. Probably not. But for now, it does make my world look a bit more wintry.
This year, the winter solstice falls on Thursday, 22 December.
Did you know the date varies? No wonder I can never remember whether it is the 21st or 22nd or 23rd… It changes!
The official time for sunset vs. sunset on that day, this year, in my town (in south-west Sweden), is 8:51 AM vs. 3:23 PM. The photo above is from 19 December around 10:20 AM.
In the far north of Sweden, like Kiruna, the sun literally does not rise above the horizon at all around Midwinter. I have to say I’m glad that down here, we at least have the chance of a glimpse of it now and then.
