Today one of my coworkers, who is prone to asking me to do the impossible, asked me if I could make it stay light longer. I replied, “Yes, just for you it will now get a bit lighter every day from now until June.” She stared at me with a hopeful look. “Really?”

I promised her that it was really true and then had to explain the solstice just so she didn’t decide that I was truly all powerful and start to expect miracles every day.

I had to explain it to Z this weekend too. She was telling me about Hannukah and Kwanzaa. She learned about them in school. I asked her if she learned about the Solstice. She said no. I said it was the shortest day of the year. She seemed skeptical. Why didn’t her teachers tell her that if it was really real?

Happy Solstice Everybody!!
