The Philippines and other countries in the northern hemisphere will experience the longest night of the year during the winter solstice on Dec. 21.

According to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the astronomical event signals the onset of winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere.

“Philippine nights will be longer than daytime. Earth has now completed another annual circuit around the sun,” it said.

Many cultures still celebrate the longest night of the year.
