|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 21 of June, repeating indefinitely

Today marks the first day of summer and is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. ☀️☀️☀️

Did you know? In the United States, several Native American tribes observed (and still observe) the summer solstice with traditions including dance, prayer, and sun salutation.

There are several Native American stone arrangements in the West that mark solar positions, particularly those of the equinoxes and solstices. Dating back thousands of years, these ceremonial sites are often considered sacred.
