The Summer Solstice arrived two days ago (it will be on June 21st in 2014), and I thought I’d start putting together a quick list of related resources that could at least be ready for use next year!

I hope others will make additional suggestions.

Here’s a beginning list of the best resources for learning about the summer solstice:

Ways to Celebrate the Summer Solstice is from Smithsonian Magazine.
