Dark times

Tonight is the night of the winter solstice, which means that it’s the longest and darkest night of the year. In Gothenburg the sun will be up just seven hours. This really makes you appreciate that almost that every home is filled with Christmas lighting and candles.
Starting tomorrow, the nights will become shorter and the days longer, and we’ll be moving towards a new spring, finally.

    Thanks for reminding me! It was getting a bit too gloomy, now I know we’re done with the worst part :)
    But, as you say, I love all the Christmas decorations, brightening up everyone’s lives :)
