    Not to pile on, but what happens from Dec. 14 to Dec. 21?

    Nothing particularly, but the combination of the elliptical orbit of the earth, the irregular shape of the planet, the angle of the North Pole, etc etc.
    means the actual time of sunset remains the same for those 10 days then begins creeping later every day.

    Ah touche

    ADD: My mistake was thinking shortest day meant earliest sunset. Forgot about the other side of it where the sun rises later.

    Memorial Day weekend. Saturday.
    It's 9 p.m.
    I have usable daylight outside.
    Who could argue with that?

    Daylight Saving Time is the bomb. Kill EST forever

    When I lived in North Nowhere, in CDT about 30 miles from the MDT border, it would be twilight until 10:30 p.m. and get daylight by 5:30 a.m. or so in June and July. Absolute heaven. Now, sunrise at 9 a.m. and sunset at 3:30 p,m,. in the winter sucks.
