Summer Solstice is sometimes referred to as "Midsummer" Litha". It's the
longest day of the year. The amount of daylight only goes down from here....for
the next six months (more on that later). Summer Solstice is the meteorological
start of summer. It's time to enjoy vacations, great weather, pools, baseballs,
and everything else that goes along with the favorite season of kids and most
adults. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the season, because for many of us
it is all too short.
Did you know? The sun does not set at the North Pole today. There is
24 hours of sunlight. Does it make up for that cold day in December when the sun
does not rise above the horizon? No, but on this day it sure does feel good
wherever you are!
