One year ago today we were wondering if we’d experience an apocalypse according the popularized interpretation of the Mayan calendar coming to an end. For me it meant the traumatic end of my laptop’s life. But, ordinarily, we witness the shortest day and longest night of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere.
In the UK, winter solstice is observed and celebrated by pagans visiting Stonehenge.
So, dear pagans, Happy Yule!
