Happy Summer Solstice

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).

Many of us affectionately refer to this day as the “first day of summer”. Google is even commemorating the solar event with a special front-page “google doodle“.

Thank God for the sun – energy source that life on Earth depends on. Happy Northern Solstice to everyone! :-).
