Happy Solstice!

Today is the shortest day of the year in the UK and so we shall be celebrating the Winter Solstice. It gets pretty dark in Scotland so it’s a great relief to everyone when the daylight hours start getting longer and we can feel the sun once more. This solstice can also be considered the Southern Solstice as the sun is directly over the Southern Hemisphere and elsewhere people are celebrating their longest day. For those of us in the north, it’s a good excuse to make some warming or spicy foods and look forward to the longer days to come.
