As if this year has not been long enough, some say today is going to be the worst day of the year.
The Solstice marks beginning in winter that means the cold temperatures are just around the corner as if they have not already arrived. The winter solstice signifies the longest night and fewest hours of daylight this year.
This is also called Yule and Midwinter, which marks the moment at which the Northern Hemisphere is tilted the farthest from the sun and occurs at the same instant everywhere on Earth.
In the U.S., it happens this morning at 11:28A ET Thursday 10:28A CT, 9:28A MT, 8:28A PT. One of the most famous solstice celebrations occurs at the ancient Stonehenge ruins in England, where pagans and other revelers gather each year to celebrate the event. But most would prefer to get back under the covers.
