First Blush at Christmas Eve
Twilight, Sunrise, Dawn.
Twilight- The diffused light from the sky during the early evening or early morning when the sun is below the horizon and its light is refracted by the earth's atmosphere.
Dawn - the point where the sky begins to lighten, the time before the sun comes over the horizon which ends twilight
Sunrise- the instant the sun comes over the horizon in the east.
Sam and Doug raised this point in the comments section on another post. It made me curious enough to investigate. So there are the basic definitions. I have always loved twilight: the light, the feel, and the fact that it comes twice. If you miss it you have a second chance.
Christmas Eve and its magic comes once...enjoy it.
