Happy Monday! I am so glad to be at work! With cheerful people and all I have to think about is work-work and also I get to drink lots and lots of coffee because it is THE SOLSTICE. WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET THROUGH IT.
This is where you get to ask me anything you want! From “How many hours do you turn off the lights at all?” to “Have you considered just playing sunny Shahrukh songs on your TV at all times?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of things you want to know!
Now, question for you! Really just a general question because I am curious. Do you have any Solstice traditions?
I don’t! I mean, obviously Christmas is a Solstice tradition, but for the actual longest night, I never even thought about it beyond a sort of oddity of the calendar. But in the past 6 years, since my Seasonal Affective Disorder has gotten really bad, I am VERY aware of it. And my tradition is to feel increasingly horrible and then remember “oh right, Solstice!” and then get very optimistic for feeling happier and happier from then on. And sometimes unofficially stay up all night just because it is such a sucky night I am afraid to turn the lights out.
Does anyone else have any more magical ideas of things to do?
