For six months each day has been shorter than the last and the Sun lower in the sky. Will it disappear altogether and leave the people bereft in the dark cold winter? The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year and is associated with more festivals than any other astronomical event.

The winter solstice takes place on December 21. Solstice means Sun standing. If you mark the position of the Sun at the same time of day over a long period, you see it getting higher and higher in winter and spring. But just around the solstice it scarcely seems to move for a few days.
