First Day of Summer!

20 June

Here are some fun facts about June 20th, which is often recognized as the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere:

  1. Summer Solstice: June 20th typically marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. This is when the Earth’s axial tilt is closest to the sun, resulting in the most daylight hours. The exact date can vary slightly, sometimes falling on June 21st, but it’s a significant astronomical event that has been celebrated for centuries.
  2. Midsummer Celebrations: Many cultures celebrate the summer solstice with various festivals and traditions. In Sweden, Midsummer’s Day is one of the most important holidays, marked by dancing around the maypole, feasting, and enjoying the natural beauty. In ancient times, people would light bonfires and hold rituals to ensure a good harvest.
  3. International Surfing Day: June 20th is also recognized as International Surfing Day. Established by the Surfrider Foundation and Surfing Magazine, this day celebrates the sport of surfing and promotes ocean conservation. It’s a great time to hit the waves, participate in beach cleanups, and raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans.

These facts highlight the cultural, environmental, and astronomical significance of June 20th as the start of summer.
