What is the Winter Solstice?

A winter solstice is the day when the distance between Tropic of Capricon and the Sun is the shortest. The winter solstice is the shortest day in the Northern Hemisphere and it’s the day winter sets in the Northern Hemisphere and all woolen clothes have to come out! For me it begins the festive season and a season to have lot’s of fun in the snow, besides shoveling it!
