The time is different every year, falling between December 20th and 23rd. 
 So  for us on Pacific Standard time that already happened today at  9:11am.

  1. This means that each day will have more daylight. Now you're talking. Then spring will be here and the world will awaken. My favorite time of the year.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  2. It's been so cold and dark it's hard to believe winter is just now arriving. I do look forward to longer days.

    Winter solstice never meant much to me, until I realized I'll be driving home in daylight again.

    Have a good weekend!

  12. Oh, I do love your shadow shot for the day, Kathe!! Wishing you and your family a most wonderful, beautiful and Merry Christmas! Enjoy!!

  16. The plants are certainly going to enjoy the increase in sun, and so will i!

  17. A happy day of short sunlight, but not as short as I thought it would be. Onward towards brighter days. Merry Christmas!

  18. Half-way out of the dark! There is hope.

    Merry Christmas - and Happy Solstice!

  19. great shot!!
    I like the solstice because it means that every day is closer to summer...

  20. And here in NZ it was the longest day and shortest night which means days here are now getting shorter :( Thanks for dropping by my blog.
