Monday Minstrel: Solstice

Solstice: the time or date (twice each year) at which the sun reaches its maximum or minimum declination, marked by the longest and shortest days (about June 21 and December 22).

Oxford Dictionary

The word solstice has its origin from the Latin word solstitium “point at which the sun seems to stand still.”

So here you have it. Summer…..

And Winter….

Greetings of the Solstice to you all! Happy Holidays for all who are celebrating holidays this week. Best wishes to everyone for the New Year.I will be absent this week with family and friends for Christmas. I’ll be back the following week.
