Every so often, this day changes from the 21st of December to the 22nd for some cool reason to do with the tilt of ๐ŸŒ and the position of the โ˜€๏ธ. Did you know that?

.

This year, the solstice itself occurs at 3.27am GMT ๐’•๐’๐’Ž๐’๐’“๐’“๐’๐’˜, and we get just under 8 hours of Friday festive sunlight. That's 8 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the longest day of the year ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

.

Today (the 21st) is still commonly regarded as "the shortest day" but this year it isn't so. (I'm sorry, I'm a data analyst, I can't help but shoot out some stats ๐Ÿซฃ๐Ÿค“) . The next time it falls on the 22nd is 2027. ๐Ÿ“†

It means that after tomorrow, sunset will happen incrementally later each day and by the end of January you'll notice sunrise happening a little earlier too! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

.

Just think about the before/after work riding on the horizon! ๐Ÿ˜

.

By the time we get to February, we'll have sunrise before 7am and sunset at 5.30pm! ๐ŸŒ…

We've made it this far - ๐˜„๐—ฒ'๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ด๐—ผ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐Ÿ’ช
