MORRISTOWN, NJ - The winter solstice marks the onset of winter with the shortest day and the longest night of the year.  

To celebrate the first day of winter, Grow it Green Morristown is inviting residents to the 10th Annual Winter Solstice Celebration from 6 - 7:30pm at the Early Street Community Garden on Saturday December 21. At this free event, attendees can enjoy s'mores and songs by the fire, let go of the past year's challenges, try some yoga movements and set goals for 2020.

The winter solstice is not the whole day and fluctuates depending on where you live. For us, in the United States, the winter solstice will occur at 11:19 Saturday December 21  EST, according to TimeandDate.
