The 21st thing I've learned this year -- the light returns after the darkest day! Yay!

This year's tree

I am not religious -- and yet we go all in for Christmas.  I found 
out that everything I like goes back beyond 2,000 years -- trees,
food, lights (not electric), song and delicious food were all part 
of the Yule celebrations -- about the return of the light.

So today is the longest day of the year, which means the light
starts coming back tomorrow.  And we sunset chasers will enjoy 
every single new minute of light that comes our way.

Happy Holidays to you!

Have a loving your life day.
