Heading into the holiday weekend, you probably feel like you're limping to the finish line at this point right? Well, it just got a little bit closer!

According to science (and also, The Gazette) Friday, December 21st will be the shortest day of the year! On both Friday and Saturday, the sun will rise at 7:31 a.m. and set at 4:38 p.m. But on Friday, there will be two fewer seconds of daylight.

On one hand, that can be a bummer. If you have to work the whole day, it'll probably feel way later than it is without that daylight. But in actuality, you'll be closer to the end of your day! The moon will be totally full, known as the Long Night’s Moon or the Cold Moon.

On top of all that, there will be a meteor shower Friday night. It won't be the most visible display, especially with the full moon, but keep an eye out!
