What Is Summer?

Summer is the warmest season of the year, often associated with sunshine, vacations, and fun outdoor activities. In most places, summer is when people head to the beach, enjoy ice cream, and explore nature. But do you know exactly when summer starts?

When Is Summer?

In the Northern Hemisphere:

For countries like the United States, Canada, most of Europe, and parts of Asia, summer starts around June 21st. This day is known as the Summer Solstice and is the longest day of the year. The sun reaches its highest point in the sky, giving us the most daylight hours.

In the Southern Hemisphere:

Places like Australia, South Africa, and South America have summer at a different time! Here, summer starts around December 21st during their Summer Solstice. So, while some are having snowball fights and building snowmen, others are swimming and surfing.

What Makes Summer Special?

  • Long Days: With more daylight, there’s more time to play outside and enjoy activities like picnics, hiking, and swimming.
  • Warm Weather: The sun shines brightly, heating up the land and making summer perfect for wearing light clothes and sunglasses.
  • Nature in Full Bloom: Flowers blossom, trees are lush with leaves, and animals are busy gathering food or raising their young.

Fun Facts About Summer

  • Polar Day: In the Arctic and Antarctic Circles, there’s a phenomenon called the “Midnight Sun,” where the sun doesn’t set for several weeks!
  • Summer Olympics: Did you know the Summer Olympics usually happen every four years during this season?
  • Ice Cream Love: During summer, more ice cream is sold than at any other time of the year.
