'Tis the Season

Happy Winter Solstice everyone.

Earth is in its closest approach to the Sun today. We are at its perihelion. Ironically, however we are now in the depths of winter. Shortest day of the year.

A couple of days hence the Sun will resume its path towards an ever lengthening day. The sun will, in essence, experience rebirth.

Sol Invictus. The invincible Sun.

Happy Birthday.
