Druids still gather at Stonehenge in the West Country to mark the occasion to this day, pagan revellers meeting at dawn to observe the morning sun rising over the ancient circle's Heel Stone. That's the home of the account's creator, web developer and npm CTO Laurie Voss.

Stonehenge, a monument outside of London, hosts one of the world's largest winter solstice celebrations, according to National Geographic.

After December 21, the nights will begin to get shorter as our planet rotates towards the sun. Even the Christmas tree might have roots celebrating the solar event.
