Photograph taken by Theresa Jodray December 20, 2001at noon in the interior region of Alaska.....


Eve of the Winter Solstice is here
Alaskan's get prepared
Sun enters sign of Capricorn
The darkness does begin

Here up in Alaska the party has begun
Capricornus in the stars carries winter in
Taking the light from off our land
Celebrations sliding in.

Officially kicking off the winter
With the shortest day of the year
Ice sculptor's busy with artistic flair
Place their sculptures here and there

The ice skaters here do scream it out
The fearful just will not come out
Winter celebrations are about to start
Eve of the Winter Solstice is here

Seen out on a very clear night
Star cluster in the sky tonight
Nestled between Sagittarius and Aquarius
Capricornus brings it in

Lights hang all about the town
There is no natural light on our land now
What will we all do now?
Let the CELEBRATIONS begin

We'll welcome Winter Solstice in
The parties do begin!
Alaskan's are honoring
The Winter Solstice again
