By Rosalind Russell – Today, December 21, 2023, is the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere
It is the day with the shortest daylight hours and the longest night of the year .
It is impossible to be the shortest day of the year because the day is still 24 hours long.
In modern times, people around the world celebrate the winter solstice in different ways.
Some people light candles or bonfires to symbolize the return of the sun, while others gather with friends and family to share a meal or exchange gifts.
