The Winter Solstice arrives tomorrow…


December over Stanton Moor

Could be a little confusion today…. and it nearly caught me out. The Winter Solstice this year is on Sunday the 22nd of December, not the 21st.  The switch in days occurs every four years.  So we will have to wait another day before those days become just a little longer and the nights a little shorter…. If the New Year pans out like many in the past, and despite the passing of mid winter, the worst of winter has yet to come.

21st December
