MMario - I hate to disagree with you, but the solstice is neither the latest sunrise nor the earliest sunset. It is merely the day in which the sunrise and set are closest together. If you go here, you'll find a link to get a table of the sun rise/set times in your area for an entire year (along with moon phases, sun positions, and other astronomical curiosities). If you run the table you'll see the latest sunrise is about 2 weeks after the solstice and the earliest sunset is 2 weeks before.
