Summer solstice is here, marking the longest day of the year and the official start of the summer season in the Northern Hemisphere! So while you eager beavers soak up those rays, here’s a playlist to keep you company throughout the day!
For those unfamiliar, the summer solstice occurs when the tilt of Earth’s axis is most inclined towards the Sun. This happens twice in a year, one occurring in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere.
The world Solstice comes from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still). Understandably, the day when summer solstice occurs is also the day that experiences the longest period of daylight.
