The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, where the night is longer than the day and in some parts of the world, the sun doesn’t rise.
But from this day forward, the days start getting longer, marching us into the New Year.
In the Southern Hemisphere the reverse is true. The Northern Winter Solstice is the Southern’s Summer Solstice, where the day is longer than the night!
