Are you disputing that it is the shortest day and longest night? Is that the definition?

We had the shortest afternoon a few days ago and the shortest morning is still a few days off, but the shortest day?

As alluded to above the earliest sunset was a week or more ago now at around 1535 - the evening has been getting noticeably lighter on fine days. Sunrises still getting later, it will get progressively lighter in the mornings. I get up at 0645 these days. It will be most welcome.
