Happy Summer Solstice 2014!

It’s a special day, (the longest in fact) from sunrise to sunset of the entire calendar year. The “solstice” as it’s called is technically “official” at 6:51 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on Saturday morning.

By it’s definition, the word solstice is from the Latin solstitium from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), because it appears the sun stops at the solstice. The solstice happens twice annually due to the Earth’s axis of rotation. Depending on the calendar year, the summer solstice happens annually in December for the Southern Hemisphere and on June 20 or 21 in the northern half of the world.

Back to reality, YAY for sunlight! We enjoy the solstice for the get-togethers around our own town, and what memories we can create in the process. We hope you find your fun, and if you’re in town, we recommend our local “street celebration” close by in downtown Rockland.

Cheers!
