        He-Ma-Yan, Thaksinayan, Tawan Aom Khao (Winter Solstice), is the longest night of the year, and countries in the Northern Hemisphere count today as the first day of winter. Countries in the southern hemisphere, on the other hand, are more influenced by the sun, and thus count the winter solstice as the first day of summer.
        A significant astronomical phenomenon of the winter solstice is the sun will move from East to West with a dent in the South, making it not pass over the heads of those in the Northern hemisphere.
        The winter solstice is one of the four major events of the sun rising and setting during the year, along with Spring equinox, Autumnal equinox, and Summer solstice.
