Winter Solstice (3 days of darkness)
Today (winter solstice) and the next 3 days is the mythical 3 days of darkness. A lot of people have seen articles and web sites taking about this though they associate it with power black outs for 3 days which is obviously not true. The sun moves into its lowest point in the southern hemisphere and stays there for 3 days, then begins its year long ascension towards the northern hemisphere. This is actually due to the tilt and wobble of the earth’s axis and has had many astrological as well as religious implications.
Merry Christmas, happy Hanuka, and all the other celebrations, and a happy new year!
