Today’s zany holiday is one everyone in the Northern Hemisphere gets to celebrate! It’s the Summer Solstice or better known as the First Day of Summer! Summer Solstice refers to the specific day when “Earth's axis is most oriented toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun to reach its northernmost and southernmost extremes,” according to Wikipedia. Today is the longest day of the year for those of us north of the equator and ushers in summer vacation, ice cream and increasingly warm weather!
Google is celebrating this outrageous holiday with a Summer Solstice Logo. You can celebrate today by soaking up the warm weather and sun. Have a picnic, do some gardening or go to the beach! Don’t worry if you aren’t able to celebrate this whacky holiday today. There are three months worth of hazy, summer days to look forward to!
Important, however, don’t forget to wear sunscreen!
