For anyone in the Northern Hemisphere we are headed into the shortest day of the year, I take solace in all the pretty lights that decorate the streets and trees, the christmas markets and the homes. It is lovely to walk around the different cities and towns with the twinkling lights. It is much better than the grey cloudy days we have been having, I must say!
Daylights hours total 7 hours and 41 minutes in Amsterdam, and any other place along the 52 parallel, for those reading Calgary, our home town, is on the 51 parallel while Edmonton is on the 53. I am guessing my friends and family back home are enjoying the lovely Christmas lights that decorate their homes and streets.
