Enjoy the snow!! And remember tomorrow is our Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. The

Winter Solstice celebrates the return of the Sun. In ancient Egypt it was called the Birth Of Horus.

 

Chinese winter solstice, Dong Zhi, marks the rebirth of the yang qualities of light and energy and marks

the coming of the Year of the Horse.

 

At 9:11 a.m. PST, the sun appears directly overhead the Tropic of Cancer at 23.5 degrees south latitude,

with the Earth’s north pole at it’s maximum tilt from the sun. (Vancouver is 49.3 degrees north latitude).

The shortest day of the year will be 8 hours and 11 minutes long and will begin at 8:05 am and end at

4:16 pm.

 

Happy Holidays Everyone!!
