First Day of Winter has Arrived!

21 December

The first day of winter, also known as the winter solstice, is typically around December 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. Here are some fun facts about this special day:

Shortest Day of the Year: The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. This occurs because the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun during this time.

Scientific Significance: The tilt of the Earth’s axis is the reason for the seasons. During the winter solstice, the North Pole is tilted furthest away from the sun, leading to the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere.

Southern Hemisphere Summer Solstice: While the Northern Hemisphere experiences winter, the Southern Hemisphere simultaneously experiences the summer solstice, marking the longest day of the year.

Modern Celebrations: Many modern holidays, including Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, are celebrated around the time of the winter solstice. The themes of light, warmth, and the coming of a new year are prevalent in these celebrations.
