Talvipäivänseisaus lauantaina - winter solstice Saturday

Yes indeed, it is the shortest day today. Tomorrow we have more daylight and then the summer is on the way!
We will soon be in the warming rays of the magnificent Finnish sunshine.
We will be dancing on the catio, surrounded by lush green grass.
But right now, it is snowy and dark and I must leap around bravely and look forward to the light returning.

We have a hard time imagining only 3 or 4 hrs of sunlight!

It must greatly reduce your catio time, too. Our catio has been off-limits quite often for us, too. We had a 30 degree drop in temps today! Brrr!

Have a great Caturday!
Pee Ess - we think we got a package from Finland. There is much excitement here!

Less that four hours of sunlight??? we'd be going out of our fur gourds.

Here's to lengthening days!!! Do you gain morning or afternoon light first?

It is good to know that the days will start to get longer, even though it will take a while to get to summer!

Yes, we are super happy that the solstice has come and the days will be getting longer.

Mum looked at how little daylight you get. She thinks our minimum of 8 hours is bad. You don't even get half of that.
