|Lights out, full effect|
I also spent a few hours clearing out piles of stuff that had accumulated in various corners, causing our living room to look a bit like something from "Hoarders." A few bags were donated to the local thrift store, and remaining papers and photos from my Dad and Grandma have now been gone through and sorted into various containers for storage. I found some more pictures and documents that surprised and fascinated me, and I'll share some more early 20th century family history with you next week.
Some interesting tidbits about Winter Solstice and how it's celebrated in various cultures here and here.
Good Yule, everyone!
