When Is The First Day Of Winter This Year 2019
The Winter solstice is the day with the least long stretches of daylight during the entire year. The word solstice originates from the Latin words for “sun” and “to stop.” In the Northern Hemisphere, it generally happens around December 21 or 22. (In the Southern Hemisphere, it is around June 20 or 21.) This data is viewed as the primary day of Winter.

What is Winter Solstice?
In the United States and the remainder of the northern half of the globe, the principal day of the winter season is the day of the year when the Sun is most distant south (on December 21st or 22nd). This day is known as the Winter Solstice.
The declination of the Sun on the winter solstice is known as the tropic of Capricorn (- 23° 27′). In the Southern side of the equator, winter and summer solstices are traded with the goal that the winter solstice is the day on which the Sun is most distant north.
A typical misinterpretation is that the earth is further from the sun in winter than in summer. All things considered, the Earth is nearest to the sun in December which is winter in the Northern half of the globe.
As the Earth goes around the Sun in its circle, the north-south position of the Sun changes through the span of the year on account of the changing direction of the Earth’s tilted turn tomahawks. The dates of greatest tilt of the Earth’s equator relate to the Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice, and the dates of zero tilt to the Vernal Equinox and Autumnal Equinox.
The explanation behind these progressions has to do with the Earth’s yearly trip around the sun. For part of the year, the Earth’s the North Pole focuses away from the sun and part of the time toward it. This is the thing that causes our seasons. At the point when the North Pole indicates the sun, the sun’s beams hit the northern portion of the world all the more legitimately. That implies it is hotter and we have summer.
The day of the winter solstice is the briefest day of the year. The period of time slipped by among dawn and dusk on this day is a base for the year. In the United States, there are just about 9½ long periods of sunlight on this day.
At scope 40 degrees north, the soonest nightfall of the year happens around December 8, and most recent dawn happens around January 5. The day with minimal measure of sunlight (the primary day of winter), happens around December 21. For what reason are every one of these dates, not the equivalent? For a definite clarification, see The Dark Days of Winter at the U.S. Maritime Observatory site.
