WINTER SOLSTICE The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. The sun appears at it's lowest point in the sky, and it's noontime elevation appears to be the same for several days before and after the solstice. Hence the origin of the word solstice, which comes from Latin solstitium, from sol, "sun" and -stitium, "a stoppage." Following the winter solstice, the days begin to grow longer and the nights shorter. Related links: Astronomical Calendar: Dec. 2004.

The ice on the RT page was near our house. My son loved experimenting with the cold weather. He was just learning to say sounded like...Coooollllddd...when he said it. I spent much time preparing these pages and planning the colors. These are some of my favorite pictures of him. The ice picture is backed with SEI gey paper to give it more of a leyering techn. It lifts up, and under it each of these items is represented by using circle bubbles and square bubbles. I used prisms, ice crystals, snowflakes, warm hats, melting snow, icicles. I used rub-on black letters over an additional ice picture.
