How do we celebrate in the US?

Across the United States, summer solstice is widely celebrated similarly to Memorial Day weekend in late May.

Some folks start their summer vacations on or around June 20, but many celebrate by holding big gatherings with foods, alcohol and music.

Some people even shed their clothes as part of their ritual to welcome the first day of summer.

What is the Stonehenge celebration?

Stonehenge's Midsummer's Eve festival is one of the world's biggest solstice events celebrated in the United Kingdom.

It occurs beside the ancient Neolithic site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire.

The stones are set within a group of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments, as well as several hundred burial mounds.

On the solstice, people gather at Stonehenge in the early morning to watch the sun rise over the stones.

You can watch the alignments in action on the Facebook page of English Heritage or on Skyscape.

Unfortunately due to Boris Johnson pushing Freedom Day to July, no events will be scheduled to happen at Stonehenge this year.
