Winter Solstice Mix 2009

the winter solstice occurs some time between December 21 and December 22 each year in the northern hemisphere, during either the shortest day or longest night of the year. Though the winter solstice lasts an instant, the term is also colloquially used like “midwinter” to refer to the full 24-hour period of the day on which it occurs.
