While we don't have much of a chance of a White Christmas where I live, we do enjoy a Golden Midwinter! The low, golden light of winter, in combination with our mostly clear skies, makes me stop what I am doing, and wonder at the gorgeousness of the world.
Sunrise on December 21st
We visited our local riparian area on the solstice, and soaked in the golden light.
All the best to you and yours in these golden days, and in 2011!
