December 21st is also known as the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Astronomically, it is the first day of the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere, when the sunlight falls on the earth for the shortest time. As a result of this, the night of December 21st is the longest night of the year as well. This year, December 21st will be special since both Masik Shivratri and Pradosh Vrat will be observed on this day together. According to Panchang, Pradosh Vrat is observed on the Trayodashi Tithi of every month and Shivratri is mostly observed on the Chaturdashi Tithi of the Krishna Paksha of every month. And both Pradosh Vrat and Masik Shivratri are Lord Shiva’s favorites.

With this blog from AstroSage, let us discuss some special measures that should be taken on December 21st and every other important detail related to this day. 

Why Is December 21st The Shortest Day Of The Year?

December 21st, around the world, including India, is observed as the Winter Solstice, where the day is shorter than usual and the night is longer. We have learned about it in school, that this astronomical event occurs due to the Earth’s tilt. December 21st is the first day of the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere as the Southern Hemisphere gets closer to the Sun. This further means that the sun’s rays do not fall on the Earth for long and the Sun sets sooner than usual, hence, making the night longer than the nights before. 

This day is also celebrated in a lot of countries, including China that consider this day to be a symbol of positivity and auspiciousness.
