    Hi,
    Dec 22nd was the shortest day of the year.
    I am really excited that we will get days longer as we pass by.

    Yes Punitha,

    Dec 22 is the day of winter solistice.

    Nowadays I regularly log in to the site timeanddate.com to check the temperatures in various cities around the world and locate where the sun is at a given time..

    It daily gives details of the duration of the day. Today the day is supposed to be 5 sec longer than yesterday.

    Yesterday it was 3 secs more than the day before.

    bye
