The pattern of light and dark follows a classic "sine" wave. At the Solstices, the amount of daylight hardly changes at all from a week before the solstice to the day of the solstice, and it begins to swing (slowly!) in the week following the solstice. Around the Equinoxes, and depending on your latitude, the change in the duration of daylight can vary by several minutes from one day to the next.

If you want precise numbers for your latitude, go to the U.S. Naval Observatory's web site and calculate the sunrise/sunset table for an entire year at your location. See the link below.
