Happy December Solstice!

For the folks in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the long awaited Winter Solstice. Though, technically the first day of Winter, the Solstice marks the halfway point of this chilly weather. Today will be the shortest day of the year, and can vary by a few hours depending on your latitude.

For the Southern Hemisphere, today is your Summer Solstice. It marks the first day of Summer, the longest day of the year, and is the embodiment of "things will only get worse from here." The hot Summer days are going to fade into a distant memory until temperate fall and irritating winter clutch your region in it"s sadistic grasp.
