      Winter Solstice (20th Day)

      Tuesday is the Winter Solstice. Traditionally it is the day that Pagans celebrate the middle of the Winter. It is the shortest day for those of us in the UK & Ireland. From then on the day will start to become longer as summer approaches.

      Summer.

      Yep, our minds will start to drift off as we think of warmer times, perhaps some hot sunshine, sandy beaches and lounging as we listen to the waves gently crashing by our feet.

      The advertising on the TV will soon be inundated with even more holiday destinations and suggestions of what you may wish to do.

      So the question is, if money were no object, where would you go?

      The original Christmas before the Christians hijacked it.
      Obviously it wasn't called Christmas originally.

      It was a morale boosting party for the peasants to celebrate getting half way through the winter without dying and keep themselves going with hope.

      If money was no object then I would want to go to another planet.
      The moon would do and I realise that is not technically a planet.
