ANOTHER OF the THREE,
IS COMING AROUND!!!
THE SUMMER SOLCTICE!!!!!!!!!
THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR!!
I suggest, all members of this website, plan to make PANCAKES that morning, to represent the sun making it's longest appearance of the entire year.
Spread the word, all atheists should eat pancakes on June 21st.
WHAT ARE YOUR SUMMER SOLTICE TRADITIONS OR CUSTOMS?
HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE THIS CELESTIAL EVENT??
yes, see the 'f" icon up above, you click on the "f", and the entire thread gets posted on facebook.
Or, just copy and save the comic, and just post that.
Deb, you should take lil Lily here today:
Summer solstice is the longest day of the year in both hemispheres. It's just that the seasons are opposed between the hemispheres. The northern summer is the southern winter. So, your Summer Solstice is our Winter Solstice, and therefore shortest day of the year.
But I do agree, any excuse for a pancake is a grand excuse! I can just say the pancake represents the returning Sun, as the days start to get longer.

PERFECT!!! (leaves to ponder how much more tolerable winter could be, if not for the short days...so little sunshine, such dark evenings, with darkness coming on before dinner even....)
and for northern hemisphere, our pancakes, being round symbols of the sun, can rep both our LONGEST DAY OF THE ENTIRE YEAR.....and our disappearing sun...
OR, MAYBE, if summers would mean nice weather,
but gets dark very very early,
guess maybe i'd prefer it THIS way, of the northern hemisphere.....
but wow, short days + winter = lousy, long winter....
