It's after midnight but I went outside just now and the sun is so beautiful at this time of the year that I ran in to get my camera. The sun is much more brighter in reality and it's daylight outside. There will be a sort of a twilight for the next 2-3 hours and then it's daylight again.
A week ago we had the longest day of the year, now the days are getting shorter until December 21. which is the shortest day. I'm always so thankful for the Christmas, the holiday of the light.
