MONROE - The Sons of Norway members were invited to a bonfire Dec. 19 to "Bring Back the Sun" at the home of Pat Holstrom. In December, the earth's northern axis tilts away from the sun and leaves Wisconsin with less daylight. The day of the year with the shortest period of daylight is known as winter solstice or midwinter.
