December 21, 2021 is the Winter Solstice, which in the Northern Hemisphere is the shortest day and longest night of the year, and the point after which the days start growing longer again. This day, the time of greatest darkness and the symbolic rebirth of the sun, has long been celebrated by many cultures, religions and spiritual traditions, including the Druidic Alban Arthan, the Chinese Dongzhi, the Wiccan Yule, and the Scandinavian Feast of Juul.
