Ha! I’ll bet you thought solstice was on December 21st! But it’s actually today, December 22nd. Every couple of years, with the leap years and all, the solstice happens in the early hours of December 22nd. The sun reaches its southern-most point and we have the longest night of the year. This is one of my favourite days on the calendar, because from this day forward, the days start getting longer, moving towards summer!
