Google Doodle celebrates shortest day of the year

Google on Sunday released an adorable snowman doodle to celebrate winter solstice, the shortest day of the year.

The word “solstice” originated from the Latin solstitium meaning “sun stands still”, when the ”movement of sun”s path” stops briefly.

Solstice occurs because the Earth is tilted on its axis of rotation by about 23.5 degrees and the tilt causes each hemisphere to receive different amounts of sunlight throughout the year.
