According to https://www.timeanddate.com tomorrow the daytime will be 3 seconds longer.
Just enjoy the daytime even to the last seconds of the day.

For those that are interested this four part series on the "Dark Ages" sheds a whole lot of light (or perhaps I should say, unblocks the light) on Christianity, Paganism, Vikings, Muslims and Saxons.

The first one addresses directly what Christianity inherited from the Pagans.

It was burned by the Roman Catholic Church because it contained Greek philosophy on morals that pre-dated Christ?
