Still wrong! :rofl

Urban dictionary gives this for solistice:

solistice
To be a solistice: a person who is lonely, but whom everybody loves. He is kind of turned into himself, not letting others in
He has been a solistice for his whole life, so nobody knew him well. Everyone loved him though.

According to this site, sunset in Nottingham started getting later on 13th December, but this is outweighed by the fact that sunrise is still getting later until December 30th. December 21st is the cross-over point, where the days reach their shortest.

Even though we're on the flat bit of the sine wave, I like to think that for each day that passes, we have to go back two days to reach a day that was as short as today. So a month from now we'll have put the worst two months of the year behind us. And before you know it we'll be on the steep part of the sine wave again.

Whatever the case, each and every day that comes and goes no matter how short or long is a bonus (we’ll it is to me as my Dad only made 54, I’m 58 now and truly expected some thing dire to happen to my health before I made it this far!)

I used to complain about the weather and the short daylight hours of the winter but actually relish it now and never wish my life away hoping the days will rush past to get to the next season.

Hope this doesn’t sound negative and as I’ve no interest in 84+ year-old women then I’ll wish you all a happy winter solstice and a very merry Christmas to follow also!

This year's solstice is pretty special

A once in 25920 year cycle where our equator lines up perfectly with the milky way galaxy. Procession of the equinoxes.
