S.A.D. – seasonal affective disorder. Something you can’t avoid if you live around the Arctic Circle. Something that messes you up. Something that makes you sad. And weird.
When the days are short – and by short I mean only a few hours daylight if there’s no thick layer of clouds covering the sky – everyone goes a bit crazy.
Some start to party hard
and even harder
til they drop
and tequila doesn’t make sense anymore.
It’s time to discover FOOD
and eat everything, however gross it might be.
And feel bad about weight gain.
It’s time to hide
and immerse in such activities as sleeping
and even more sleeping…
…coz nothing brings joy in life any longer.
But hey, I have good news!
The 21st of December is almost here, and it marks the Winter Solstice. It means that from tomorrow on the days are getting longer, so it’s time to stock up on some more Vitamin D and hit the dancefloor to celebrate that this madness is NEARLY OVER!
