The Big Days come thick and fast around this time of year, but for many people today is it, or not as the case may be. You see, the trouble with being tied to astronomical events is that, not only do your holidays not fall on the same day each year, they don’t fall on the same day everywhere on the planet.
I’m not an expert on such things, but a brief bit of Googling turned up the information that the timing to the winter solstice is around 1:00am EST. That means that for most of the planet it will already be tomorrow when the solstice happens, but for us here it California it will still be today.
Anyway, today is more convenient, because I suspect a whole lot of you will soon be going offline for that Other Holiday, but you might actually still be following your RSS feeds today and thereby get your seasonal wishes. Please consider yourselves seasonally wished.
I haven’t sent many cards – I never do – but if I had lots of money you’d all be getting one of these. As I don’t have lots of money, it is DIY time again. You still get a card with tentacles on it, but you have to download your own from here.
And finally, for those of you who will be celebrating that Other Holiday, Nadolig Llawen.
