Winter Solstice: [non] This year, the exact moment the winter solstice occurs is at 17:02 pm (Central Time USA), which is the moment when the Earth is tilted the least toward the sun and receives the least sunlight. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (the longest in the Southern Hemisphere), although is not, strictly speaking, the coldest day of the year. The winter solstice is the first day of astronomical winter and is also referred by many simply as "the first day of winter". The winter solstice does not fall on the same day every year, rather, it can occur at any time between the 20th and the 23rd day of December in the northern hemisphere.
