It’s the longest day of the year for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the summer solstice for us (or Northern Solstice to be more globally correct). It’s still a 24-hour day like every other one, but it’s the most amount of *sunlight* in one day for us in the north. After today, the amount of sunlight each day will decrease until the opposite southern solstice occurs (in the winter for us northerners).
Thank God for the sun – energy source that life on Earth depends on. Happy Northern Solstice to everyone! :-).
