Winter Solstice

Posted by hs on December 21, 2005

Today is Solstice – Winter Solstice in Northern Hemisphere – the longest night, or the shortest day – whichever way you see it. Sun is over Tropic of Capricorn (and thus in the Southern Hemisphere, its Summer Solstice – longest day/shortest night).

Solstice is not always wonderful, it can be especially hard on some people. Dark periods affect people negatively and they take to various things to get over the blues. The seasonal variation of light causes Seasonal Affective Disorder that is not exactly what the doctor would order for holiday season.
The Winter is officially here!
