I don’t believe in gods which created mankind or the Earth.
But I do believe that the Earth is very important and should be protected and celebrated by mankind. So I celebrate the days which are special from the Earth’s point of view.
One of which is the winter solstice.
In 2016 it will occur at 10:44 on 21 December, at which time most of us in the UK will be awake.
So, when that moment arrives, I wish everyone a Happy Winter Solstice and a happy return towards the Sun!
