Summer Solstice on Newsfeed - June 21st is the summer solstice. Time to celebrate, so grab your feathers and beads and be ready to keep some secrets because we’re all headed to Brazil… What? Oh, that’s Carnivale not the Summer Solstice. Dangit. The summer solstice happens every year on June 20th or 21st and what is scientifically means is that the earth is tilted on it’s axis to give the sun its highest most northerly point in the sky… but what it really means is that this is the longest day in which you can day drink so skip work. People celebrate this event in a number of ways. In Seattle, WA there is a parade full of naked body painted hippies on bikes. No better way to remind yourself that it’s summer time than seeing a bunch of naked pasty white people who haven’t seen the sun yet this year.
