Today marks the point in the year when our days get longer!
On Dec 21st, the sun rose at 7:55 and set at 4:20 - the day was 8hr 25 min 15 sec long
On Dec 22nd, the day is 1 sec longer!
On Dec 23rd, the day will be 8 sec longer than Dec 21st
On Dec 24th, the day will be 20 sec longer than Dec 21st
On Dec 25th, the day will be 37 sec longer than Dec 21st
Obviously it will take a while to see the change, but psychologically, Dec 22nd is a lovely day, happy Winter Solstice.
