Solstice Trivia!

VFire never dropped her trivia in the episode so here is your fun solstice fact of the day!

"The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. For the Southern Hemisphere it is the longest day of the year! Not that the we have more or less than 24 hours, but the time the sun is out during that 24 hours changes with our seasons... and is part of the reason for our seasons!" - VFire's nerdy space trivia

Also here is her horrible but fun Cosplay Before Christmas story VFire made when she was being silly one year with friends. Link takes you to Deviantart. Enjoy!

As always, we love our listeners!
