Now would be a good time to explain why our sunsets are already occurring later and our sunrises will not occur earlier for a couple of weeks.

Happy solstice, as the unconquerable Sun returns and is reborn (oops, that's pagan, not xmas)

And a blessed solstice to you Exeter:) And ...there is certainly more than enough evidence that almost all of our Christmas practices, perhaps even the legend of the nativity itself is steeped in pagan lore :) Blessed Be! Happy Yule, Merry Christmas, to all :)
