Happy happy – the sun starts moving north again – or rather the earths northern hemisphere starts tilting back towards the sun.




And then the clouds got heavy, it rained and became dark, and the party got going. 

It will soon be spring. 

Midsummer celebration here is on the first friday after summer solstice. 

We get together with neighbors, discuss the weather and stuff, picknick in the green and dance around the maypole. 


The weather is grey, but I’m glad for the rain this morning. Now off to the old timers party all night. 

Later this evening

  
The shortest day and longest night, this year the solstice occured on tuesday, december 22nd, at 04:49 GMT.

Glad Midsummer!

The natural new year came about 10 days/nights ago with the solstice. Now they say we have another new year. The more holidays the better.

Have a Happy One anyway.

New Year dinner with reindeer meat, mashed potatoes and salad and more.

We’ve hit bottom. The days get longer and the nights shorter from now on.

It’s warm, windy, the sun is shining almost all night and there is a promise of a little rain for this evening. Perfect for the Summer Solstice Celebration.

I always try to get all four crop circles filled out by solstice, and this year I succeeded. Yesterday I planted out all the remaining plants and seeds, leaving a couple of beds empty for a later crop of lettuces. Most of the first weeding is done too. Last year I was later by more than a week.

Now I can feel relaxed for a couple days of partying.

Seasons Greetings from our Tomte. As far as we are concerned the new year starts at the winter solstice when the sun starts to rise in the sky and warm up the northern hemisphere. Some believe new year starts at the spring equinox.

Whatever – Happy New 2013!
