Yes, second-happiest. The happiest is June 21: the longest day of the year.
Why is December 21 the second-happiest day of the year? Because from today on, the days get longer by a little more than a minute a day. I say, WOO-HOO!!! Yes, that one calls for bold, italics AND capitals!
I love summer, no matter how hot. I love getting up with the sun before 5 am, and not heading into the house until 9 pm after a full day of work (OK, I’ll admit that an hour or so of napping in the sun would also be part of my ideal day!).
So from today forward, it’s “Summer, here I come!” Dontcha love it too?!?
