Get Outside and Celebrate (Something) Tomorrow!

Do you know what tomorrow is?

June 21, of course!

Which means it's...

  • The Summer Solstice -- the longest day of the year -- an event celebrated by millions of people around the world, especially those who take part in pagan religions. Perhaps you can catch a summer festival in your area; they're sprouting up all over the world, from the Summer Solstice Parade in Seattle and NYC Midsummer in New York to Saint Jonas' Festival in parts of Europe

Officially Go Skateboarding Day, as proclaimed by the U.S. Congress -- there'll be events from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to London, England to Vancouver, Canada. You can find a complete list of events all over the world at

  • Lots of great summer music festivals -- most notably in Paris, where the FĂȘte de la Musique brings hundreds of musicians (playing everything from jazz to hip-hop) to streets, cafes, auditoriums, and lots of other stages to perform in free concerts beginning at sundown

HAPPY SOLSTICE/SKATEBOARDING DAY/MUSIC FESTIVALS! We'd love to hear about how you celebrate--and what your favorite holidays are!
