Hey thanks.
Here's an interesting and related video from The Cassiopeia Project.

Have you ever noticed on the teacup carnival ride, the cup seems to stand still for a second when nearest to a person standing, even though it is in constant motion?

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and of course, Happy Birthday Sir Isaac Newton!
Every year, the Earth reaches this point in its journey around the Sun. Because of our planet's axial tilt, this marks the time when days begin to lengthen and nights become shorter! This phenomenon was critical in the northern latitudes to every ancient culture. They often ascribed supernatural reasons to this natural annual occurrence. In the 400s, the nascient Christian religion borrowed many of the winter traditions of their pagan converts and melded them into what we know today as Christmas.
Christmas is a Christian tradition; the winter solstice belongs to us all!
Be with friends and family, give to others, receive gratefully, and enjoy what has been a special time of year for humans for some 200,000 years!
