Really?  You're supposed to stay up on the date of winter solstice?  I was under the impression the night before it was the longest night, the day was the shortest day, and the night after is when the nights started getting shorter (or both nights have the same length), so I was gonna try to stay up tonight.  But I've got nothing to do the next two days, I can hang out on this board tomorrow night =)

VikingBoyBilly,

Please don't forget to quote.

Thanks,
Melamphoros, TC Staff

(P.S. I was under the impression that the night before the solstice ((tonight)) was the longest night as well)

I wasn't quoting anyone specific, even if the beginning of my post sounded like it.  It was just a response to the first post, the topic in general, and i didn't think anyone would care whether or not I quoted the part altair said to stay up on the 21rst.

We require that the quote function be used in every reply -- even to the first post (and to posts reminding someone to post).  The reason we do this is to help keep us follow the flow of the thread and it is impossible to tell who the reply is to if someone doesn't quote.

What do you guys think? Who's up for this?

I'm excited about this! I've been pretty sick the past week, so most of my preparations for my first winter solstice died off and I'm not left with much. I still don't know if my health will let me stay up the full night, but I'm going to try! I can always crash and sleep the entire next day. Yay for college breaks!

Curiousity got the better of me, so I checked my local sunrise/sunset times on weather.com.  Here, they're listing the same times for both days.  *shrugs* Not that I plan to stay up all night either way. I like my precious sleep far too much.  Smiley

I checked last week and it seemed like 3 or 4 nights right around now are all the same.  I'm sure they vary by seconds, but I could only find the minute data.

Same here, then tomorrow is longer by one minute(sunset at 5:02pm).  Maybe it has to do with tonight being the longest night of actual "winter"...idk. ::shrugs::

I won't be staying up the entire night like last year, but I will be getting up with the sunrise, which is at a nice 8:25 am local time.  Cheesy Merry Solstice, everyone!
