So, for some of us, the Solstice will come Tuesday the 20th rather than Wednesday. I'll be in Portland, OR, that day, so I'll be celebrating at 9:24 pm on Tuesday!

The 2017 summer solstice occurs June 21 at 04:24 GMT.

I guess I am having the longest summer solstice here in Anchorage, Alaska. Sunrise was at 4.20am and sunset is at 11.41pm. However it is raining and only 11'C (51'F) at 7.30am so does not feel like summer. I will have longer days later in the week when I go to Denali and Fairbanks.

I hope it was very memorable, brian! I'm in Portland Oregon and the solstice was noticeably longer up here, too. We had just concluded a talk to the Rock Garden Society and everyone was standing around oohing and ahhing about the plants they had brought for "show and tell". What a great ritual.

I would love to spend it eating cold crawfish and drinking shots of icy vodka, as I've heard they do in Norway on Midsummer Night.

Any Norwegians reading this? Can you confirm?

I heard this when working in New Orleans on a story about how the Chinese were trying to underprice and take over the crawfish market, an important industry in Louisiana, where crawfish are hugely popular. They're usually served hot there, boiled with spices and lemons and the occasional chunk of potato or corn.

But I can see eating them cold, with vodka, being a nice way to spend this long bright evening.

I just simply stayed at home, and relaxed for the evening.
