Early this morning the Earth passed the point during which the day and night are of equal length. It just gets darker from here on. Today is New Year's Day of the year CXV according to the French Revolutionary calendar. It's also Mabon, or Alben Elfed, according to the Celtic calendar of my ancestors. I'm sure you can find a way to celebrate that fits your cultural background and political inclinations: steal some cattle, make love under the harvest moon, burn down a manor house (not recommended), prepare the garden for winter, or stand an egg on end.
