Is Winter Solstice on the same exact day everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere?

    It actually isn’t! The “date of the winter solstice” on many websites is calculated with Coordinated Universal Time (known as UTC), which is almost the same as Greenwich Mean Time except for the fact that it is based on atomic measurements. In 2010, for instance, a person in the UK has the winter solstice at 11:38 p.m. on December 21st, which is the UTC time. In Tokyo, Japan, the winter solstice occurs on 8:38 a.m. on December 22nd!
