posted on this blog some time a while ago in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blagh whenever bloggers block possible. And I know winter solstice is still a ways away, it's just that this blog seems to want something to blog about, I think. And this winter solstice post isn't even including that end of the world or change as we know it 12.21.2012 mayan calendar thing which could be a whole another blog post.
And Winter solstice is fast approaching on the morrow. I know because
that Gregorian calendar and all of these winter solstice events that I
am seeing advertised says so. And what does the solstice mean anyway as
those sol letters seem as if they have something to do with the sun.
And I heard someone say the other day that the days get one minute
longer or shorter each day leading up to the winter or summer solstice
or something. And I think December 21st could be the shortest day of the
year I have heard. And it seems to be an astrological event also. And
what does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have to say about
this day, let's see... "A solstice is an astronomical event that happens
twice each year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is most inclined
toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun's apparent position in the
sky to reach its northernmost or southernmost extreme. The name is
derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because
at the solstices, the Sun stands still in declination; that is, the
apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south comes to a stop
before reversing direction. The term solstice can also be used in a
broader sense, as the date (day) when this occurs. The solstices,
together with the equinoxes, are connected with the seasons. In some
cultures they are considered to start or separate the seasons while in
others they fall in the middle."
And there will most likely be many of those balls,
parties, ceremonies, parades, festivals, observations and other events
to be found in that city of New York and beyond on that winter solstice day. Have a great winter celebration day.
