The winter solstice occurs on 21st December 2020, in the northern hemisphere, the date marks the 24-hour period with the fewest daylight hours of the year. That is why it is known as the shortest day of the year, or the longest night of the year.
Since the Earth is tilted on its axis, the arc the Sun moves through during the day will rise and fall across the year as the Earth’s pole points either towards or away from the Sun.
The winter solstice occurs at the minimum point for the northern hemisphere, when the Sun is lowest in the sky.
At this time, the Earth's North Pole is pointing away from the Sun (which is why it is so much colder in the northern hemisphere).
Most people concentrate on the whole solstice day, which has been recognised by holidays and festivals in many cultures all over the world.
The world 'solstice' comes from the Latin solstitium meaning 'Sun stands still', because the apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south stops before changing direction. At the winter solstice, the apparent position of the Sun reaches its most southerly point against the background stars.
While both solstices are celebrated by modern day religions and tourists alike, the ancient civilisation that first built the monument most likely did so primarily for the winter solstice, perhaps to request a good growing season in the year to come. The main features of the Stonehenge site date from the centuries around 3500 BC.
