Winter Solstice

The December solstice happens at the same instant for everyone, everywhere on Earth – and this year the Winter Solstice occurs on Sunday December 22, at 04:19 GMT in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Winter solstice happens every year when the Sun reaches its most southerly declination of -23.4 degrees.

The day after the winter solstice marks the beginning of lengthening days, leading up to the summer solstice in June.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the opposite is true.

Soooo, were headed back to sunlight, and before you know it, Spring a new growing season and summer!
