Usually today, June 21 is the summer solstice - the longest day in the year. But 2012 has thrown us a loop. In fact yesterday, June 20 was the solstice and was the longest day of this year. How did that happen?The summer solstice occurs when the sun reaches its highest peak north of the equator. While we in the Northern Hemisphere get to celebrate summer, those in the Southern Hemisphere are cooling down for winter.
As for me, I attended the Solstice Yoga in Times Square yesterday. What an event! If you like Yoga and are in NYC over the next Summer Solstice, don't miss it - register early. But no matter how you celebrate or acknowledge the Solstice, keep in mind that going forward from yesterday, the days become a little shorter. Enjoy the sunlight for every second!
