The summer solstice has always held fascination for man (and woman). It is that time of the year when the Sun reaches its most northern point in the sky at local noon. It is the longest day of the year.
But way before man charted such things, we instinctively knew that this was a special time of year. It's the time of warmth and sunshine and longer days to spend with our friends.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, summer is just around the corner.
