The First Day Of Winter

The first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere is the day that the sun is farthest south, which is usually December 21st or 22nd (aka Winter Solstice).

I just thought I'd look that up (gotta love the net).

I don't know why this surprises me... isn't it the same every year? Should I find it odd that the first day of winter is so close to Christmas? (My husband would say that I'm odd). Yes, he has quite the sense of humour.

Light bulb moment: maybe that's why I'm a last minute Christmas shopper!!!! My internal shopping clock is set to buy Christmas things only after the first day of winter!!!

Phew, I'm glad I figured that out. Here I was thinking I'm unorganized, or something...

With the cold snowy weather, you'd think it was sooner.
