Summer Solstice 2016 | Infographic showing Irish Celtic Traditions

Infographic is on Ali’s blog 😀


I can’t believe it is that time of year already… the summer solstice takes place between June 20th and June 22nd, depending on which hemisphere and what time zone you’re in.  From now on, the days start getting shorter, and the nights longer, although you won’t notice it for quite some time yet. But just knowing it always makes me feel a little sad. I never want summer to end. Although living in Ireland, it quite often never seems to even get started at all!

This beautiful infographic has been designed by John Cunningham of CelticCrossOnline, who very kindly allowed me to share it with you, and it will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Summer Solstice. You may also want to check out his website; John designs the most exquisite jewellery in silver and gold based on Celtic Cross designs. You can find him…

  1. Agreed! The solstice is the ultimate “hump day”. You’re at the peak of the year, knowing that the rest is a steady slope back into winter. This year in Switzerland has also been really rainy and somewhat cool, never quite sticking a toe into summer’s pool. How can we be heading back into winter already?! 🙂 I think my coffee mug was half empty this morning. (Must be post-Bash blues.) 😛
