The longest day of the year (and the shortest night) marks a time of celebration for many people in the Northern hemisphere as they welcome the coming summer. The sun reaches its highest point in the sky in late June, and whether you call it summer solstice, midsummer or June solstice, people around the world are marking the occasion in a variety of ways––like building bonfires, playing midnight sports, and making their way to Stonehenge.
So, while those in the Southern hemisphere are bundling up for winter, those in the North are welcoming long, lazy days this time of year. Whether you want to connect with all the mysticism of the astronomical summer or just welcome the hot days with a cold, delicious beverage, we're here for you!
