Winter Solstice: Wishing You Peace

From the Farmer’s Almanac:

The winter solstice is the day with the fewest hours of sunlight in the whole year. This year, the winter solstice arrives today, Friday, December 21, at 5:23 pm EST kt wibro 다운로드.

Coincidentally, December’s full Moon—the Full Cold Moon—will also appear on the night of the 21st, though it will not be at its absolute peak until the next day 쿄시로2030 다운로드. So, keep your eyes peeled for a (near) Winter Solstice Full Moon that night! (Believe it or not, the next full Moon to actually peak on the winter solstice won’t be until 2094!)

The day of the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, meaning the one in which we experience the least amount of daylight in 24 hours; it is also the time when the Sun reaches its southernmost point in the sky 이혼신고서 양식 다운로드. Although this part of Earth is cooling, its great thermal mass still retains some heat from the summer and fall. As the gradual cooling process continues over the next two months, temperatures will continue to fall, and the coldest temperatures will be recorded 스카이 캐슬 9화 다운로드.

As winter officially begins (even though the weather is autumnal) everyone here at the farm wishes you a most peaceful winter. For we farmers who spend so much time in the sun, thinking about growing hours and daylight, winter on the farm is an important time 윈도우 7 64 iso 다운로드. It is the time when our orchards, vineyards and fields go into their deep sleep to prepare for another growing season. It is the time when all of us get to catch up with family and friends, linger over a cup of coffee, delight in eating our frozen/canned fruits and vegetables, and not set alarms windows safari. The moments of quiet and solitude are perhaps the best gifts we receive as we find time to relax and rejuvenate. All the best to all of you!
