Summer Solstice

“Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Those days of soda and pretzels and beer.” 

After a long winter and spring, summer in the Northern Hemisphere has finally arrived with the longest day of the year. Not only that, but we can expect to see a Supermoon this Sunday, a.k.a. a perigee full moon, when the bigger, brighter moon is closest to the Earth. 

How to celebrate this momentous occasion? 

According to WikiHow, my go-to source on the Internet, there are eleven ways to celebrate Summer Solstice, including breaking out the telescope, dancing around a Maypole and throwing a party with a bonfire. I’m choosing option #3, “Sit Outside and Read a Book,” along with my pretzels and beer, of course, while listening to Nat King Cole. 

Do you have any special plans to celebrate this day? Here’s wishing you a sunshine-filled, relaxing summer!

    I have no special plans except to be outside as much as possible. Those who live in the Pacific Northwest understand the need to grab the sunlight when it presents itself, although pretzels and beer sound nice, too.

      Yeah, it’s so nice to be outside at this time of year!

Talk to me ;)
