Let there be SUNSHINE!
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine, almost always, makes me high (John Denver)
Sunshine is a precious sight this time of year – especially in the northern countries!
Celebrating the shorter days and longer nights of winter with festivals of light (St Lucia, Christmas Trees, Chanukkah, New Year’s fireworks), many areas also welcome the brief light of Sunshine!
Soft sunlight contrasts with the snowy white of frosty landscapes creating scenes of peace and serenity!
