    If only things were as simple as the days getting longer on the 21st:

(The equation of time results from a combination of the tilt of the earth's axis and its elliptical orbit.) Indeed, the time of earliest sunset is a few days before the winter solstice, and the latest sunrise a couple of weeks later. It is the rate of change of these two things that mean that the shortest day is in between (and closer to the latest sunrise.)
    But as they say: as the days get longer, the cold gets stronger
