2. December is like one holiday after another

all having to do with the losing and regaining of light.
Prep yourself for next Saturday(Dec. 13). It is Santa Lucia day - a big one in northern europe where it is so dark this time of year.
Lucia is a form of the Latin word for light - thus Lucia is a young girl who brings the light.

If you look at a solar calendar you will note that the sun starts setting later about that day, even though the day still gets sorter as the sun comes up later.

So prepare for a little lucia next Saturday.
