Solstice

December 21st is the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere.
The local name is toji (冬至) and the characters indicate that winter has well and truly arrived.

Sunrise is scheduled for 6:48 (just minutes before I leave for work) and sunset will be at 4:31 (around the time I leave work)

And it’s freezing!

The nifty app on my new phone that gives me sunrise and sunset times. We get approximately a minute more daylight on December 22 (assuming the world doesn’t end)
