Aloha Friday #6

It's time for Aloha Friday again! I ask a simple question and you answer it! If you want to participate, head on over to An Island Life and follow the instructions! It's a great way to make new bloggy friends!

For my regular readers, I apologize for my lack of posting this week... I know, it's really pathetic that I have NOTHING between my last two Aloha Friday posts! I promise I will post something in the next day or two.

My question for this week:

In just two days (December 21st), it will be Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year). Being so far north in Alberta, Canada, our days have been very short! I'm turning on the outside Christmas lights at 4:30 in the afternoon! So, my question is this: What are the sunrise/sunset times in your part of the world right now? Today, the sun rose at 8:47 a.m. and the sunset will be 4:15 p.m. I am very ready for the days to begin lengthening around here!

Oh my gosh, I have no idea. I need to look that up. All I know is the sun sets entirely too early right now.

Ok, looked it up:

Today's statistics are:
Sunrise: 8:09am
Sunset: 5:16pm

Merry Christmas!

In Hawaii sunrise is 7:04am and sunset is 5:53pm. Much aloha!

8:08am and 5:17pm
But I noticed my lights turned on at 4:45pm too... I guess I need to change the timer outside
