Summer Solstice - June 21

Today we celebrate Summer Solstice, first day of summer, the longest day and shortest night in the Northern Hemisphere. Officially it begins at 6:07 a.m. And so the earth tilts on its axis about 23.5 degrees. How will you celebrate? My daughter is celebrating on a deserted island where she just notified me that she received certification for advanced kite surfing. As for me, I'll be celebrating with Hot on Homes later today and taking a class right afterwards.

 

"Both the Winter and the Summer Solstice are expressions of love.

They show us the opposition of light and dark, expansion and contraction,

that characterize our experiences in the Earth school so that we can

recognize our options as we move through our lives." --- Gary Zukav

 

 

Throughout the world people will be celebrating the solstice with ceremonial dances and other rituals. In Texas, the sun will rise at 6:19 a.m. and set at 8:38 pm. In Dallas, people can exercise their body, mind, and spirits with Yoga, offered FREE at JCC of Dallas, 7900 Northhaven Road, Dallas, TX 785230 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Yoga lovers celebrate Interational Yoga Day & Summer Solstice - be sure to follow the link for additional information. 

 

Fort Worth also has celebrations planned to celebrate the Summer Solstice, such as the 6.21 mile run. Donations for 15% per registration goes towards Kids Alive International. If you can't get out to celebrate today in Fort Worth, be sure to consider celebrating on Saturday, June 23rd at Summer Solstice Artspost.

 

Of course, one of the most historical celebrations occurs with Stonehenge and ancient cultures, such as the Maya and the Aztecs. The world is culturally diverse and those who celebrate, do so in their own way.

 

Have a safe and happy solstice!!!

Enjoy your day, Patricia! As for me, it will just be business as usual. The more daylight I can get in the mornings, the happier I am. As for evening hours, not so much... when it's evening I like it to be dark.

Good morning Patricia. Summer solstice here in Chicago will be rain, heavy rain, cloudy skies the balance of the time and temps hovering in the 60's! Summer really? Where? Enjoy your day!

Patricia I was not aware of much of this about the Summer Solstice.  Very interesting.

I forgot today was the first day of summer until my husband mentioned it when I got home from work. It has rained here most of the day

We had an overcast day - due to area thunderstorms. But, overall, it was a pleasant summer solstice. Congrats to your daughter.  I like her location to celebrate too.

I saw the celebration at Stonehenge. Summer temps arrived a couple of weeks before the actual date, Patricia.
