I hope everyone can find a reason to celebrate during this time of year. Hate to think of anyone missing out on a chance to get together and party with friends, relatives and loved ones.

I'll celebrate two Christmases (being of Ukrainian heritage) but the past few years the winter solstice has come to mean as much, but in a quieter, more private sense of celebration.

In any event - I look forward to the season and wish all a happy and healthy time.

And a Merry (two!) Christmass's and happy winter solstice to you, TroutDude! Celebrating both sounds cool. Just out of curiosity, how do you go about celebrating the winter solstice?

Snowboarding, when not in the tropics!

Jerwarde: Be careful out there snow boarding! Don't soar too high off those moguls, you Olympian, you!

Pcamps: Spain? What better time of year for a trip to Spain! Nice and warm over there!

It's currently a whopping 12 degrees where June is. And a snow storm heading our way. Just not ready for this....

We're 8 degrees warmer here in RI but snow is falling and I have never walked so fast back from my regular Saturday watering hole( the BBC). Going to walk the my dogs on the shortest walk ever and its feet up soft pants and snuggie and snuggie slippers time.

Warmish not nice and warm, but better than shoveling snow Viva Espana

First snowfall of the season.

Awoke to the predicted amount of at least 8 inches of white stuff, and temps are supposed to rise to the upper 30's today. HOW is it that it can go from 12 degrees to the upper 30's within 24 hours is simply beyond June's comprehension! (Clearly June's no climatologist!) Am about to go out and shovel, although am hoping that my next door neighbor will swing by with his snow blower to help with the driveway as he does each year to help June out. (He's been a lifesaver in the past when we've been hit with high accumulations, in knowing that it's just little ole June over here ever since June's son moved out and got his own apartment. A truly wonderful neighbor!) Wouldn't mind the snow quite as much if it was one of those nice sunny days that typically follow a major snow storm up here (although, quite frankly, 8 inches isn't all that "major" for us) but it's drab, overcast, gray, and just plain UGLY out there! YUCK!

But for the fact that June loves her house and the change of seasons, she'd contemplate moving....Just getting too darn old for this. (And June's not even "that old!" LOL!)
