    What time is that then?
    It's the winter solstice today if you work on GMT
    and are only interested in the time of sunset.

    No it isn't.
    Whole new definition of winter solstice there.

    Earliest sunset December 13th.
    Latest sunrise December 30th.
    The solstice is halfway between the two.
    The day length varies throughout the year due to the
    eccentricity of the earth's orbit so the government
    adopted an average or mean daylength (The mean in GMT).

    I'll celebrate midwinter at the earliest sunset, GMT,
    when the woods are not full of druids.

    As did I. Generally 'cos it's my youngest brother's birthday and it was
    a good wind up that he had the shortest birth *day* of the year.

    I can now gladly report, thanks to the power of the quesy inducing
    *500mg* antibiotics, I can now breath again and feel less like death.

    Although moving house whilst needing the antibiotics is not something I'd
