It's the start of summer and you're eager to par-tay, so what holidays can you celebrate in June? Well, there aren't any major holidays but there are plenty of fun celebrations you can observe this month.

World Environment Day

Celebrated every year on June 5th, World Environment Day is a United Nations holiday that celebrates Earth and our environment. This year's theme for World Environment Day is "Think.Eat.Save".

Donald Duck's Birthday

Donald Fauntleroy Duck's birthday is officially recognized as June 9th. On this day in 1934, he debuted in the Silly Symphony cartoon, The Wise Little Hen. This year Donald will turn 78!

Superman Celebration

Are you a big Superman fan? Then have we got a celebration for you! In 1972, the city of Metropolis, Illinois was declared the Home of Superman by the Illinois legislature. It took seven years to get the party started but in 1979, the very first official Superman Celebration was held and has been an annual event ever since.

Flag Day

Flag Day is said to have first been celebrated way back on June 14th, 1885, when schoolteacher B.J. Cigrand had his class celebrate the flag's birthday. It was officially declared a holiday by President Harry Truman in 1949.

Summer Solstice

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, which means there are over 13 hours of daylight. Summer Solstice falls between June 20 and 23 of every year and has different significance for various religions. The ancient Chinese for example, celebrated the Earth, femininity and yin (the dark, passive element of the yin/yang balance) forces on the summer solstice. This year Summer Solstice is Saturday June 21st, 2015!

Blank page I am like the blank useless page at the back of a book, hiding behind all that's meaningful, waiting to be ripped out and misused, the page that has no meaning, the page that gets burnt and drawn on, used as a thing to pass the time by, as in itself is useless, simply a mistake. you see the only thing in which this page has to provide to this world is of a story, showing sadness and disappointment, hatred and regret. all things come to an end, this page merely fades slowly as it burns with its pain and sorrow, until that page has departed. overall the "book" is better off without the useless blank pages, like me.
