The year is almost over. My calendar reads December 21, a special date called Winter Solstice. Or Summer Solstice if you are south of the equator.

 

What is Winter Solstice?

 

The day on which Winter season starts in the northern hemisphere.

And the shortest dayof the year north of the equator.

And a special moment of the year since Neolithic times (confirmed by Stonehenge).

Holidays around the world are linked to the Winter solstice.
