Tonight I may be wearing something similar to pajamas when the sun sets. I’m thinking some polar fleece when I climb on the roof — there’s a flat bit, don’t worry — to behold the Christmas Star on the winter solstice.
The heavens will be putting on a show last seen about 800 years ago. Jupiter and Saturn will join in the sky to appear as a wondrous bright shining object. Look quickly when the sun has set in the west-southwest — the star of wonder will be visible to the naked eye for two hours only.
Now back to earth.
Usually I spend the week before Christmas talking about food on this website and posting recipes. If you want —
This week I won’t be cooking up a feast. I will be having Christmas dinner with the love of my life in a very quiet house, yet the magic is still here.
Happy holidays! And all my hopes and wishes for a brighter, happier, healthier new year.
