*Daphne, my younger daughter, asked me if it’s winter yet and I said, “Yes, sweetie.” Maia countered with “No, it’s not! The first day of winter is December 21st.” And I said, “Okay, yes, technically the first day of winter is December 21st, but it’s starting to feel like winter and many people consider winter to start now.”
