First Day of Winter
December 21, 2020
Winter begins today at 6:02 AM Atlantic Standard Time
Today is the shortest day of the year, which means that it’s the day in which we experience the least amount of daylight.
Logically, it would make sense to assume that this is also the coldest day of the year, since we are exposed to less warmth-giving sunlight on this day than at any other time. But this is not true.
The coldest day of the year is usually in January (something to look forward to)
