The Earth tilts on it's axis as it moves around the sun. In the Northern Hemisphere, Dec. 21 is the day when it's tilted the furthest away from the sun. After today, the amount of sunshine will steadily increase. At first it will be a minute more every couple of days, increasing until June 21, the summer solstice which is the longest day of sunshine in the Northern Hemisphere. I personally consider tomorrow to be the beginning of the New Year :)) Let's all hope it's a lucky one with the lottery!! Good luck to all.
