Did you notice just how early it got dark on Monday?

It was the winter solstice — the shortest of the year. Or, put another way, we got the longest period of darkness at night for the year.

Welcome to winter.

Bundle up! Wear the socks!

Then again, it’ll be 72 degrees in L.A. on Tuesday, so enjoy the warmth while you can.

That was clear on Monday, as people took to the outdoors, absorbing as much daylight as they could — even in the coronavirus era.

Winter solstice happens when one of the earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens once in each hemisphere during the year.
