Winter Solstice

It's about time.

Winter arrives today at 7:22 P.M.in Columbus Ohio.   The Winter Solstice listing in Wikipedia confused me. It says the 2006 Winter Solstice is December 22, 2006.  I went back to check, 0:22 A.M on December 22, 2006 UTC or GMT.

"UTC is Coordinated Universal Time, GMT is Greenwich Mean Time." according to the site with the time converter above.

It's about space.  Today is the shortest day of the year... and the longest night of the year. 

Today is National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day"Sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC)."

Tom Barlow of Blogging Ohio wrote of recent state legislation. We now has an official amphibian, an official sandwich and today is Homeless Persons' Memorial Day in Ohio: 

"The 21st of December is now "Homeless Persons' Memorial Day." Do you suppose there's a connection between our ambivalence about the homeless and the fact that that this falls on the shortest day of the year? I wonder if Hallmark makes a card for this yet."

pssst  Tom...  we'll still get 24 hours... the longest night of the year is the connection... The Longest Night is one of the Winter Solstice celebrations.

Homeless Shelters in Columbus are a great place for a holiday donation, whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, the Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa or another holiday this time of year. 

Faith Mission

We do not have snow yet. We are not supposed to have a white Christmas in Columbus.  Good news for the homeless.

Stop by my other blog, Columbus Best Blog...  for more about Winter Solstice.  What is that  Santa Claus doing?
