June Holidays

Jun 01, 2017

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. 

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.

Father's Day

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 Tuesday June 20th, 2017!

Didn't seem all that great to me. Nothing's happened all day. :P A family friend got married under it in Montana, though, which is pretty awesome (assuming it was visible there).

Just 30 minutes ago, the solar eclipse of 2017 was at its peak. Meanwhile, I was watching from our backyard, flashing my eclipse glasses of and on. It was an  AMAZING  experience! So much so I typed "amazing" with bold, italic, and underlined full caps. Just when it began, I could see that little hole in the sun as the moon's shadow drifted along. When it reached totality, we took turns rapidly putting on the glasses. It was incredible to see the shadows of the trees turning into the shape of a crescent. So, what did you think of the eclipse? Put your thoughts in the comments.  [s:p/zxl]
