Maybe someone remember when I wrote and complained about our few hours of daylight in December. Now we have some weeks with the opposite. It never gets dark! But I don't complain this time. I like this even if it's a bit hard sometimes to get the kids to bed. Both of the photos was taken yesterday at midnight. We can't see the sun at that time where I live, but on the second photo I took the shot against the sunlight. All this has to do with the solstice and the axial tilt. If you are north of the Arctic Circle you can see the sun the whole night.
Our word for the sun is from the latin word "sol" and if you read about the solstice you can see that it has strong connections with our celebrating of Midsummer. Which I think will be my next post on the blog. A very important thing that everybody already talks about and the newspaper writes about is: What weather will there be on Friday (Midsummer Eve)??!! Because everybody wants to eat and play games outside.
Well, right now the weather forecast doesn't look so well, but they have been wrong before... Or we have to dress up with raincoats!
