Happy 1st Day of Summer. Officially, that is.

June 21st, 2010 by stephanie

So, did you know that today you can plan for about 15 hours of sunlight? It’s true. Welcome to the Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

Solstice only happens twice a year. Summer and Winter. And the Summer Solstice marks the time from spring planting to autumn harvest.

For you scientific types, it’s the day when the sun is farthest north.

If you’re over in the British Isles, you might whoop it up at Stonehenge with the celebratory crowd there that dances the night away.

The rest of us, can enjoy a day full of sunlight and embrace the steamy season that lies ahead.
