  • The Winter Solstice

It's the first day of winter - the winter solstice - when the earth tilts the northern hemisphere farthest away from the sun. In the meantime, here is what you need to know about the winter solstice. On the winter solstice in Fairbanks, total daylight lasts less than 4 hours. However, this particular year's solstice happens at 11:28 a.m. EST today. From that point on, periods of daylight get longer. In Fairbanks, Alaska, they will see three hours and 41 minutes of daylight, while those north of there will be plunged in darkness all day.

While we colloquially refer to the entire day of December 21 as the winter solstice, Google notes the term technically refers to the moment when the sun is directly above the Tropic of Capricorn.

Previously, the mouse did some spring cleaning all the way back in March for the spring Equinox, enjoyed the sunlight on a summer day during the June 21 summer solstice and prepared for the arrival of fall on September 22. Persians refer to the occasion as Yaldā Night, and it's a time for families to gather over pomegranates and watermelons that symbolize an active, joyous winter. On the day of the solstice the Sun Priest declares the exact moment of the rebirth of the sun with a long call.

Although the pagan celebrations of Yule and the Winter Solstice are from Scandanavian and Germanic cultures, Scotland has it's own history with the shortest day. Both maps include different time zones and latitudes, which are marked in different colors.
