The Winter Solstice is falling on Tuesday, December 21, a moment when the sunlight falls on Earth for a short time, resulting in what is called the shortest day and longest night of the year. Astronomically it is known as the beginning of winter and the end of summer in the western part of the Earth.

During the Winter Solstice, the southern hemisphere receives more sunlight while the northern hemisphere receives less. This happens on December 21, 22, or 23. This makes the day shorter and the night long in the Northern Hemisphere. Just like the winter solstice, there is summer solstice. On this day, the length of the night is short and the length of the day is long. The Summer Solstice falls on either June 20, 21, or 22. During this, sunlight falls more in the Northern Hemisphere and less in the Southern Hemisphere.
