Since this is a holiday of gifts, fun and celebration, Libra – the sign of friendship and sharing with the

Virgin, rabbit, eggs

Yes, December 21 is the longest night of the year – but it is the next day when the day grows just a wee bit longer and a little longer the next and so on. They wanted to be darned sure that Sun was indeed returning before getting out the party hats and horns (or reasonable facsimile
