Winter is coming. Winter solstice marks the beinning of the coldest season, usually occurs annually December 21-22 in the Northern hemisphere and June 20-23 in the Southern Hemisphere.  The same dates in opposite are referred to as the Summer Solstice. 

The Winter Solstice occurs when the geographical pole (North or South) is most greatly tilted away from the sun. This day marks the least daylight and most night of the year. From here on, the days get longer until the Summer Solstice.

The significance varies among cultures.  Some celebrate the event with festivals marking the cycle of death and rebirth. Traditions include feasts, gatherings, plantings, and making holiday foods. 

Get cozy and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa!
