Solstice, the return of the sun!

For those of us in the northern hemisphere tomorrow, Dec. 21st, marks the Winter Solstice.  This is the day of the longest period of night, but that's not what we celebrate.  We're celebrating the return of the sun!  After the solstice that days start getting longer again, and though it might not seem like it at times, we're heading back towards warmer weather.
