Why Everything In Montreal Gets Better Starting TODAY!

You might not know it yet, but today is the best day ever!

Yes, I know it's cold outside and there's ice everywhere, but trust me. Everything is going to better from now on.

Food will taste better, the air will smell sweeter and even Christmas music will seem less annoying.

That's because this morning at 11:27 am was the start of the winter solstice which just so happens to be shortest day of the year. That means starting tomorrow, the days will be gradually getting longer!

Every day from now on, the sun will set 1 to 2 minutes later and starting January 8th, it will also start rising 1 to 2 minutes earlier everyday!

Soon we will no longer be waking up and coming home in the dark.

Now we only have the good things to look forward to: Actual Christmas (Which is also better than this 3 month pre-Christmas season we're in.) New Years, sunshine and, dare I say, springtime!

Go ahead, do a happy dance. No one is watching.
