Today is the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. And it’s also a Monday. Talk about a depressing combination!
But this coming Friday is Christmas, so a lot of people will have a long weekend next weekend, whether they celebrate the holiday or not. That’s something to look forward to.
And speaking of looking forward, starting tomorrow the days will begin getting longer again, just a little bit at a time. The very short days and long nights in January, especially after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, made January (and February) particularly difficult when we lived in Anchorage. I usually tell people that we left because three Januarys was my limit. Five hours of daylight is just not enough.
But for those planning to read the long nights away, this bloghop gives away oodles of bookish prizes.
For my part, I’m giving away either a $10 Gift Card or a $10 Book to the lucky winner. This is an international giveaway, the books can be sent anywhere that Book Depository ships. Just fill out the rafflecopter below for your chance to win.
And for more bookish Midwinter celebrations, be sure to check out the other stops on the hop!
