In case you thought Winter started the week before Thanksgiving when we had our first snow storm, or at the lowest point the stock market hit this month, I’m here to set you right. Winter starts today. Today, December 21st, is the Winter Solstice and it is the shortest day and longest night of the year.
At the North Pole, the sun never rises on this day.
This is not the coldest day of the year. The northern hemisphere will continue to get colder until the days get long enough again to have a warming effect.
So get ready to celebrate the days getting longer from now on until that longest day, the summer solstice, arrives in June. See http://www.holidayinsights.com
Happy Winter Solstice.
