yetiok... """Currently, the Earth reaches perihelion in early January, approximately 14 days after the December solstice.""" ...that is north/sout invariant but a different date07:39
yeti1st derivate of day length = 007:40
yetiwould fit N/S invariant for today07:40
yetibut who would understanbd that?07:40
onefangSo today is the December solstice, correct.  It certainly isn't "midwinter" everywhere though.07:40
yetisolstice + monthname ... ok...07:41
yetif' = 0 fits summer too... on both halves07:42
masonYule, today.16:45
golinuxNo . . . solstice today17:14

golinuxI'd go with the one that can be scientifically proven17:34
masonAnthropology is a science too.17:44
fsmithredthe ancients had enough astronomy to have their holidays on the solstice17:59
golinuxfsmithred: Indeed.18:15
fsmithredit's already warming up here. 36F. Spring is right around the corner.18:29
bgstack15Hm, I read somewhere that the Roman calendar got filled up with holidays so that by the end of the empire, there were more holidays than regular days.19:26
golinuxIf that is a sign of decline and decay, US is well on its way.  Holidays are just annoying. Just let days be days and foget the hype.19:32
JackFrostLeePen: Thanks for the Debian elogind upload.23:19
