Winter

The first day of winter is today! The first day of winter is marked by winter solstice. Two important events occur on the winter solstice: the sun is at its lowest altitude above the horizon at noon, and it is also the shortest day and longest night of the year. After winter solstice, the nights will begin to get shorter, and the days will grow longer. Winter solstice has historically been a time of great importance, with different cultures celebrating in fascinating ways. A common theme throughout these cultures was that of rebirth or new beginnings. Happy winter!
