About the Season of Summer
June 21 : 1st day of Summer
Did you know that summer begins on June 21st and ends on September 20th in the Northern Hemisphere?
In the Southern Hemisphere, however, mid June is the start of winter weather. For Aussies, South Africans and South Americans, the summer actually falls in December, January and February.
Summertime! Maybe it’s hot and dry by you, or perhaps you get the humid and muggy air. But whatever the dew point in your part of the world, summertime definitely means taking fun-filled trips to the beach or pool, enjoying family picnics and fun outings together, and, of course, lathering up with sunscreen.
