In ancient days, this day marked the “Mid-Winter” and helped in crop sowing time and sometimes harvest.

How to watch Winter Solstice?

English Heritage is a charity that manages and observes the phenomenon, and live streams the event “Winter Solstice of Northern Hemisphere” every year.
Winter Solstice is not a day-long phenomenon but it occurs at a point when the earth’s north pole is at the farthest position from the sun.

English Heritage also live streams the sunrise the day after Solstice, when days start to become longer because that is the moment traditionally marked as “Stonehenge”
