The longest day

It’s a special day today. It’s the beginning of the Wimbledon tennis tournament and it’s also the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. We call the longest day of the year the summer solstice.

The opposite (the shortest day) is called the winter solstice and it will happen this year on December 21st or 22nd.

In England, some people like to visit Stonehenge to see the sun rise over the ancient monument. I’ll stay up late tonight and sit out in my garden until the sun sets. How do you celebrate the summer solstice?
