Yes, the days are getting longer though it might not seem like it. The Sun actually begins to set later in mid December even though shortest day occurs around December 21/22. In contrast, the sun continues rise later until early January when, at last, it begins to come up earlier.
These few minutes are hardly noticeable now, but in a few weeks the increase in day length will become obvious, with anticipation of the longer days of summer to come. By the way, though it is winter, the Earth is actually a little closer to the Sun in January than it is in June, though not enough closer to make a great deal of difference in temperature.
