Gratitude journal
three good things

Longer days

Today is the Winter Solstice (a day later this year), and a day to be grateful as the nights now grow shorter and the days get longer.

In astronomical terms, it’s the first day of winter, when the North Pole is tilted at its furthest from the sun, putting the sun at its lowest in the year. Today we get seven hours and 20 minutes of daylight, which will rise gradually to 16 hours and 40 minutes on 21 June.

Today, clear skies permitting, you might also see shooting stars from the Ursid meteor shower, which comes round at this time of year.

Roll on summer!
