In the dark?

This month’s “Streetwise” question was a bit tough for most people. When asked “What is the winter solstice?,” most people shrugged their shoulders and answered, “I don’t know” or “Don’t ask me.” Some thought about it and responded with “I’m not sure, but I think it has something to do with leaves or food or something.” Well, four brave souls dared to answer. Check out their responses and then look below for the “official” definition of winter solstice.Answer: In astronomy, the winter solstice is the moment when the earth is at a point in its orbit where one hemisphere is most inclined away from the sun. This causes the sun to appear at its farthest below the celestial equator when viewed from earth.In the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice usually falls on Dec. 21 and/or Dec. 22, which is the southern hemisphere’s summer solstice.
