Do the days start getting longer after December 21st?

With December 21st being the shortest day does it start staying daylight longer after December 21st?

After December 21st which is the winter solstice. The days do start increasing in length by a minute each day.

You won't see much difference in the daylight hours until around springtime though. But the daylight will last longer once the winter solstice is over and everyday after that.

I can't wait until it starts staying daylight longer as I hate it getting dark earlier since it feels like the day is over already.
