Well, with the weather we've been having lately it hardly seems possible that winter is just now 'officially' getting here, but it's true!  Today, December 21st, marks the official 1st day of winter, technically the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere. (And correspondingly, the longest day of the year if you're down in the southern hemisphere.)

The celestial 'winter solstice' has been celebrated by different cultures around the world for thousands of years.

Did you know that the 'solstice' itself can actually happen on different days? It's true! It can occur on December 20th, the 21st, the 22nd, or the 23rd depending upon the year.

I hope you've enjoyed this past fall and, as always, if I can be of any service with your real estate needs over the holidays please don't hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.

Happy 1st day of winter!  And stay warm!
