Dec. 20 Sunrise at 9:24 and sunset at 3:15.
But that's not the whole story. Even at noon the sun is very low on the horizon. Hibernation doesn't seem like a bad alternative lifestyle!
We've been blessed with some relatively clear days and are happy to get whatever sun we can. We did buy a "happy light" which is supposed to give some benefit, but I'm personally a little skeptical.
Above all we feel blessed to be in Finland, and find new meaning to the hymn "He is my Light." What a boost it is to our spirits to associate with these young missionaries and with the young adult members here! There smiles and enthusiasm brighten every day!
|This is as high in the sky as the sun got on a recent clear day. Even at noon it feels like sunset.|
