Does anyone notice the subtle change in the length of the day coming to and passing the winter solstice?

Yes, i notice all year too. I wait patiently for 12/21 each year as the days get start to lengthen again. Gets me a little cliser to warmth

Yes, i notice it right through the year, mainly because half the year I have to wake up before sunrise and the other half it's after.

Only thing I notice these days, is how much I really don't like the cold anymore. I used to tolerate it better. Bring on Spring!

It gets light here right now around eight and the sun sets just after 5. Ahhh, but summertime......light at 6 and not dark till 10

I don't notice. It's more like I figure it out.

I hate when I lay down for a nap in the afternoon and wake up thinking I'm late for work in the morning and it's still evening. It can only happen one day a year.

Interesting. This year I've been more tuned into it...

It doesn't seem so subtle to me! By the time I get home for work, there is no daylight to work outside! I'm looking forward to the days getting longer instead of shorter.

The solstice is coming on the 21st!

They days will be getting a teensy bit longer starting then.

Yes, if you look up the time or compare the figures of sunrise and sunset times, for instance in London:

According to London statistics, the day length, since December 22 amounts to
+ 29 seconds ...
