solstice and yule time


xmascard2011_blog.jpg

at 9:30 pm here in the Pacific Standard Time zone on this evening of December 2011,
if I understand it right, it is Solstice Time,

time to nod to Midwinter and the pagan traditions of Yule, Yulefest, Jul, Joulu....
time to rejoice that this longest night will soon be over and the days will lengthen,

a good time to wish all of you, my dear friends and readers,
a happy Solstice, 
Joyful Christmas, Hauskaa Joulua,
Frohe Weihnachten, Joyeux Noël, Happy Holidays, or whatever you celebrate.

Love and light, peace and joy,
and a big thank you to all of you for your friendship.

I agree - this is much more traditional than my annoying singing cat card!

Same to you, and all good things, ML!

That's a very beautiful card and a wonderful sentiment too. All the very best wishes of the Season to you and your dear family.

I'll drink a quality ale to that, dear Marja-Leena! I am thinking of your bells. Do you have them hung this year again? Sweet music of the Solstice I wish to you and your loved ones!

Bob, but yours made me laugh.

Lucy, thank you for the good wishes and for being here.

Susan, thanks for your kind words and wishes and regular visits here.

Rouchswalwe, thanks. Oh yes, the porcelain bells - they are hanging in their special spot again this year.

Oh, that reminds me! Christmas season of 2008 we had more snow than we could have dreamed for! Do you remember this solstice eve photo?
