Can you think of a Holiday that is in June? The First Day of Summer and Father’s Day might come to mind. But that’s not all, there are plenty of fun and wacky holidays in June.
The First Day of Summer changes each year and currently it changes between June 20,21 and 22. The first day of summer or the summer solstice isn’t based on a calendar date it depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator.
The first day of summer is also the longest day of the year.
Celebrating fun holidays each month is such a fun and easy way to make memories with your kids and make ordinary days a little extra fun.
In this post, I will share the holidays I think will be fun to celebrate with kids along with an idea or two for making it fun.
