Happy Winter Solstice 2014

The winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere will begin today, December 21, 2014 at 6:03 p.m. EST.   This occurs when the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun.  In terms of light, this is the longest night of the year and the shortest day of the year.  The winter solstice is celebrated by many people around the world as the beginning of the return of the sun, and darkness turning into light.

This is also the official first day of winter for us.   Whatever you do today, the Colorado Traveling Ducks and their humans, wish you happiness.
