Today is the longest day of the year. Happy Solstice, everyone!
“The summer solstice, also known as estival solstice or midsummer, occurs when one of Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun.”
Translation – the closer you live to the equator, the less you will notice. If you live in Canada, however, you’re likely very aware of how long the days are this time of year. The sun often starts rising around 3 am and doesn’t set until after 10 pm.
The long hours of daylight are definitely welcome by me at this time of year. Sadly, after today the days will get increasingly shorter all the way to December. I love me some sunshine.
