Half way out of the dark

The Time of the Doctor poster

Today is the shortest day of the year, when the darkness begins its gradual recession and the sun emerges from behind the clouds. In every culture, this day is marked by some form of Holiday.

In the religion Christianity, it’s called Christmas. In Paganism, it’s called the Winter Solstice. The early settlers of Kazran Sardick’s planet called it the Crystal Feast. Whatever your culture calls it, the shortest day is important for marking the seasonal watershed. As of today, we’re officially at our deepest point. And now begins the gradual climb back up to the light. Well done. Well done, everyone.
