Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.

As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year.
in between our celebrating, it's a good idea to think about ways to use that energy from the sun.
happily, there are some people and companies that are doing just that.. and in very stylish ways
Enjoy this wonderful time of year. Oh...and don't to enter the solstice giveaway! It's the last day!!
Happy Solstice Everyone
