In honor of Winter Solstice...2010...

Princess Gwendolyn commands all to have a Happy Solstice!
Greetings and best wishes this winter solstice, which will occur at 11:38 pm on December 21....for 2010 (according to wikipedia). This marks the moment when our Sun quits running away from us and will begin to return....of course the temperature and the weather always lags....the Sun is the leader, don't cha know? A staggering number of folk celebrations have accreted over the years associated with recognition of this astronomical event that marks the ending of shorter daylight hours and the beginning of longer hours of daylight. Happy all of them!

Samson doesnt like his mullet covered up.
I am no so fond of the Winter Solstice other than the fact that we start trudging uphill. I much prefer the Vernal Equinox. I do love the fall though. Oh heck, I dont know what I'm saying. I despise winter and prefer all other seasons. Blah Blah Blah

Happy Solstice to you and yours.

Thank you for commenting Dana and Christina.

Yes Dana, it was fun to add the hats..I hope the "hattees" weren't offended.

Winter is a hard time for most animals and plants Christina but you're right in that solstice marks the start of the journey toward more sun. A good solstice to you and yours too.
