As in ancient times, people look forward to when spring and summer, and warmer, longer days will start. From June 21 until December 21, the days get shorter and the nights get longer.
Many cultures celebrate and acknowledge this point in time with festivals and rites to welcome the seasonal start of winter. It's believed that Stonehenge in England was used for these types of Winter Solstice rites by ancient druids.
