Find something to celebrate ever day! June is a month for Father's Day, Kansas City Royals Baseball, the Summer Solstice and other festivals. It's a month for iced tea and watermelon, picnics, gardening and other outdoor activities.

Every Day there are holidays and celebrations around the world. For the purpose of this website a "holiday" is any day in June that recognizes a cultural event and other stuff.

Summer Solstice - A Windham Hill Collection

I love Windham Hill which has sadly gone out of business a couple of years ago, so you will want to pick up this lovely album while you can. Every song on this album is a mini-masterpiece. This album will bring a smile to your face! You might also like their "Winter Solstice" albums.

June Is Summertime

      Wow, I did not realize there were so many holidays in June. I thought it was enough having my husband's birthday and Father's Day to fall in the same month. Real clever way to feature your lenses. I like this a lot. Have a Happy June!
