Tomorrow – Summer Begins

On June 20, 2013 by stratfordschools

Stratford Family,

Tomorrow is officially the first day of Summer! Happy Summer Solstice!

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. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December.

Have a great day!
