Definition of Winter Solstice
The winter solstice is the day that marks the shortest period of sunlight and the longest period of nightfall for the northern hemisphere. It is also called ‘midwinter,’ and ‘longest day.’
This is when the Earth is tilted farthest away from the Sun in its orbit. This happens twice a year, and it is opposite for each hemisphere. From the Earth, this is when the Sun seems highest in the sky.
In the southern hemisphere, these quarter days are opposite to each other, and the midwinter for the northern hemisphere is actually midsummer for the south.
TERM OF THE DAY
The word ouija is actually two words combined, the French and German words for yes, ‘oui,’ and ‘ja.’ Ouija is associated with the ouija board. This board has letters and numbers on it and those who consult the ouija board use either a planchette or a dowsing pendulum to spell out the spirit-guided answers to their questions. There is some disagreement as to whether the use of ouija boards is safe or not. They should never be used as a toy.Read the full Ouija definition
