The shortest day in the year have played an important role in various religions and cults since time immemorial and even contemporary human beings are not feeling very comfortably during the long winter nights, psychologists claim. That is why this day is celebrated with much light all around the world.

Winter solstice 2011 is much the same as every other winter solstice but it will be remembered with heavy rains in many parts of the United States instead of snowing that is more common during this time of the year.
