Today, Friday, Dec. 21, the Winter Solstice occurs at exactly 5:23 p.m.

Some of you are delighted, while others are counting the days until spring arrives.

Most people count the whole day as the December Solstice. However, the Solstice is actually at a specific moment – when the Sun is exactly overhead the Tropic of Capricorn.

This is the day with the shortest daylight hours (9 hours and 5 minutes).

Welcome to Winter. Let’s hope it’s a good one, and we don’t have to shovel several feet of snow at one time in the coming months.
