Sad times: prepare yourself for three months of dark nights

Sonya Barber

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news on this grey Tuesday but we think you should know – darkness is coming! Actually, it's already here. We've just had a look and it turns out the sun won't set until after 5pm until February 7 2016! As most of us finish work after 5pm, that's 95 days of dark old cold nights and very little sunlight. But hey, it's not all bad, wintery London sunsets look ace, ice skating and all that festive jazz looks better in the dark and you don't need an excuse to stuff yourself on comforting puddings. Convinced? Us neither. Just make sure you stock up on vitamin D and Sad lamps pronto.
