Solstice officially marks the first day of winter. It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. (Good news: our days only get longer from here!)
Stonehenge, one of the most ancient stone structures made by humans, is designed to pinpoint the precise day of the solstices.

And how about a little literary inspiration for you on this long night?
by Hilda Morley
A cold night crosses
The world appears
very large, very
round now extending
far as the moon does
It is from the moon this cold travels
It is the light of the moon that causes
this night reflecting distance in its own
light so coldly
(from one side of the earth to the other)
It is the length of this coldness
It is the long distance
between two points which are
not in a line now
not a straightness (however straight)
but a curve only,
silver that is a rock reflecting
not metal but a rock accepting
distance (a scream in silence)
where between the two
points what touches is a curve around the world
(the dance unmoving).
