It’s the shortest day of the year today – the winter solstice.

In pagan times it would have been a time of great rejoicing with the promise of the rebirth of the sun and a return to light.

The good news is that it only takes about a couple of weeks before the increasing hours of daylight becomes noticeable.

Roll on summer!
