What is the Winter Solstice?

The Winter Solstice is a special day that happens every year in December. It marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. This day is when the sun is the lowest in the sky, and it’s also the official start of winter!

Why is it Important?

The Winter Solstice has been celebrated for thousands of years by people all around the world. It’s a time to welcome the return of longer days and more sunlight. Many cultures have special traditions and festivals to celebrate this important event.

The Science Behind It

The Winter Solstice happens because the Earth is tilted on its axis. This tilt makes the amount of daylight change throughout the year. During the Winter Solstice, the North Pole is tilted farthest from the sun, which is why we have the shortest day.
