Summer Solstice - June 21, 2019

Summer Solstice occurs when the sun reaches both its highest and northernmost points in the sky. It marks the start of summer in the northern half of the globe.  In Norway, the summer solstice is celebrated with the Slinningsbålet Bonfire.  The Slinningsbålet Bonfire is the world record holder (2018) for the tallest bonfire in the world, with over 4000 pallets used in its creation, all done by hand. Watch this 2 minute video about the Slinningsbålet Bonfire.
