Tomorrow will be the shortest day of the year - the day with the least amount of daylight
Which means it will seem like the l-o-n-g-e-s-t day: dark, damp and dreary.
Here's how to get through the rest of December and the two dreadful months that lie ahead. Remember that after tomorrow, it's all downhill to summer. Each day that follows tomorrow will have more daylight. From that standpoint, each day will be a little bit nicer.
So, even though winter technically begins tomorrow, winter's demise is already underway.
In other words, the dead of winter is really the beginning of the death of winter.
