Today is the official First Day of Summer! Here's a little fact that you may not have known:
Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky. As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year.
So bring out the BBQ, grab a drink, and enjoy the longest day of the year out on your deck!
