Please let there be light for seniors


My favorite day of the year is Dec. 22!  It has nothing to do with Christmas being just a few days away, or the fact that I might possibly be done shopping by then. It has to do with daylight. 

On Dec. 22, we have two more seconds of daylight than we did on Dec. 21. I know it’s little but I think it’s noticeable.  Today (Jan. 18) we have 29 minutes and 12 seconds more daylight than we did on Dec. 21. See it’s making a big difference, fast.
