Winter Solstice Greetings

The Winter Solstice began yesterday at 5:23 PM Eastern Time. It was the shortest day of the year and the first day of winter in the northern hemisphere. Around here (Latitude: 39.68N Longitude: 75.75W) the length of the day was approximately 9 hours and 21 minutes. Happy Winter Solstice.

Here’s a track from George Winston on the Windham Hill label.

  1. Winter Solstice Greetings! Is Sankranti festival any way connected to this solar event?

    In the video I noticed fresh tree leaves plastered with ice (0:51), may be due to unseasonal snow. One of many wonders of nature.
