Yesterday was the shortest day of the year - the day with the least amount of daylight
Which means it seemed like the l-o-n-g-e-s-t day.
Here's how to get through the rest of December and the two dreadful months that lie ahead. Remember that starting today, it's all downhill to summer.
Each day that follows will now have more daylight. From that standpoint, each day will be a little bit nicer. And each day will have less darkness.
We've reached the low point. Now we're on the way back up again.
So, even though winter technically just began, winter's demise is already underway.
In other words, the dead of winter is really the beginning of the death of winter.
