And it will be cloudy and snowy here where I hope of glimpsing a full moon or an eclipse! But I dont need to see it to celebrate it!

I like how you put it -- the sun AND the moon will be reborn! Makes chills run up and down my spine!

Thank you for the beautiful reminder of this magical day and night. It will be one powerful time. Don't forget to light candles or the yule log to celebrate the return of light.
