Yes, have no fear, even though it’s the shortest day of the year, you can complete an entire book in the time it takes for the winter sun to disappear below the horizon.
The shortest day of the year, known as the winter solstice, occurs annually when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun. This event marks the beginning of winter in the Northern Hemisphere and summer in the Southern Hemisphere. The winter solstice is the astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the North Pole is tilted farthest away from the sun, resulting in the shortest day and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
