Summer is coming :D The nights are getting shorter :D Days are getting longer :D Today is the shortest day of the year. December 21st is Winter Solstice when the sun is at its most southern point in the sky.
I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Do you mind, some of us are trying to dance naked around Stonehenge, enough with the New Labour optimism.

    That's like soooo 1997!

    That's the bugger, though. While the overall day length now gets longer, it is just the evenings getting lighter faster than the mornings are continuing to get darker. The mornings will start getting lighter about a week after the solstice, just as the evenings have been getting lighter since about a week before the solstice.

    Don't try reading that after a pint or two ... although it might actually make more sense then :)
