Bring in the light

This year, the first night of Hannukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, falls tonight, late enough in the calendar year to coincide with Winter Solstice, the day with the shortest period of sunlight in the year, celebrated by many as the "rebirth" of the year that ushers in the lengthening of light period of days.

Whether you'll be celebrating either, both, or nothing in particular this evening, lightness and brightness to all.

They always did the best they could

so happy to have solsticed with you. i think we celebrated in just the right way (by running towards the shiny bright lights and nearly freezing to death repeatedly.)
