Winter Solstice ... or the Shortest Day of the Year

Friday, December 21, 2007
I have made it to Dec. 21, Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year (light wise), or as we like to call it up North, the Day where we start to head back from the Dark Side. Yes, we are half way through our dark season here in Arctic Bay. Starting tomorrow, we will start to gradually get more "day light" peeking over the horizon (although, I don't think we will notice too much change at first, but once that deep pink color starts to come back over those mountains, we are all going to be extremely giddy. And by February 6th (as I have been told), the sun (the real ball of fire) will be up and over the mountains that surround us, gradually staying up longer and longer each day until we get to our 24/7 Sun Season.
