Today is one of my favorite days of the year. By my -- admittedly odd -- standards, today is the shortest day of the year.

Today is the EARLIEST sunset of the year. The sun sets at 4:08. It does that for the next couple of days and then starts setting LATER. The sunrise continues to get later each day, so the actual hours of daylight continue to go down. But since I'm never up at sunrise, the SUNSET is actually a more realistic indicator of the length of the day. Starting now the days start getting LONNGER. Sorta.

Your ståndards are odd. Dec 21 is the shortest day of the year. Check the internet.

Mom is correct the shortest day is Dec. 21
What is your source for this information?
Dec. 9th is incorrect
