Divorce Goddess - You can do this, be in your grace and be empowered...: Shortest Day of the Year, Elvis' Lonely This Chris...
From a observation point on a nearby pyramid, the early Maya could watch the sun rise behind these buildings and mark the summer and winter solstices (the longest and shortest days of the year) as well as the vernal and autumnal equinoxes (when day and night are of equal length).
Christmas falls on one of the shortest days of the year. Even though the sun has set, you want your space to be as bright and cozy as possible. Start by stringing lights around the Christmas tree. But if you are a dedicated decorator, you can add bright, merry throw pillows or other colorful décor. Hang stockings by the chimney, and add another log to the fire. Then curl up in a comforter, and read eBay's guide to making your living room merry and bright for more ideas.
As we welcome back the Sun God and his light, I wish that light to shine brightly upon you, may you be surrounded in the warm loving arms of The Divine, and feel their presence supporting you in your quest for new. Today is the Winter Solstice! It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. Yuletide Blessings to You and Yours!

Shortest day of the year means I can start rebuilding my vitamin D sanity again as the days lengthen. Woohoo! But for tonight we're embracing the dark by lighting up all the candles. Hope you have a lovely night! #wintersolstice
