The winter solstice will occur tonight at 12 minutes til midnight. At that time the Sun will cease to move southward and begin its trek northward toward spring. Regardless of the propaganda from various religious sects, it is this astronomical observance giving hope for warmer brighter days ahead that is the "Reason for the season".

The term 'solstice' derives from the Latin word 'solstitium', meaning 'Sun standing still'.
