I didn't realize the significance of this date until I got home and looked at my calendar which still was turned to June. I was hoping Ma could hold on until I got there I was told she had a week, it turned out to be days but she was gone before I got there. Now I know why. Though Ma's Spiritual Path was different than mine, she nonetheless understood and respected my Spiritual Path as a Moon Worshiper and an observer of the 8 Spiritual Rites I hold sacred.
I believe this was the last gift she could give me. Summer was our favorite time of year, and strawberry shortcake was our favorite dessert.
It is now July 14th and 3 weeks have passed. I have my waves of joy and sorrow and yet I am grateful to her for leaving me a remembrance that I will celebrate every Full Moon. It appears that within the last five to ten years recent memory someone decided to begin messing with the thought patterns of the Baby Boomers in relation to the First Day of Summer.go to link
Chinese Calendar of March 2020
It has always been on June 21st prior to that time when the sneaky 'switch' started occurring. Even the Almanac and all of the yearly calendars stated the same thing. I'm sticking with the original date, June 21st because I like the idea of being a purist when it comes down to recognition of when Summer actually begins.
As for the 20th is concerned, it's just another day trying to hijack the original Summer starts when the Earth is at its most tilted towards the Sun, when our axis is pointed the furthest towards the South. After this point, the axis begins its 6 month movement back towards North, until the Winter Solstice. The actual date can and does vary. This has nothing to do with anything but the Earth's tilt and its movement.
As I am not a farmer or no nothing of farming I was led to believe that the first day of summer is 21st June. Even Stonehenge and British Heritage say the same.

Can you please tell me why then it is the 20th June to a farmer and does that change yearly because there seems to be some confusion. I've always remembered the 1st day of summer being June 21st also. I feel for you, especially on your birthday. It would change a lot if it was the 1st day of winter suddenly. This changing of dates is nonsense. They should stick with the reason we added February 29 in the 1st place. I am 75 years old and have always known the 1st day of summer was on June 21st Why is it the 20th of June this year? Janetta, the summer solstice occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer.
That can occur from June 20th to June 22nd.

It is far more common on the 21st so this year has an additional "rarity" but a June 22nd solstice would be far rarer. This year the first FULL day of summer will be on the 21st forget all those other posters - the summer solstice marks the first day of summer ,. Otherwise how would people decide what point on a circles circumference is the begining. Wouldn't that be a lovely 'share'?
Sleeping with the window open to take in the sounds of wildlife. Getting up early with the Suns Ray in my face waking me somewhat gently. Having a fan running circulating the breeze I might not get at the moment.
And charging the atmosphere with negative ions for healing of the earth's body and all of creation. Walking about the garden either on the porch or grounds and gently brushing my hand across each plant and sniffing that hand. And finally gently looking forward to the Earth preparing to go into her Croning becoming the Grandmother.
Having been the Mother now, and being the young Maiden during the Spring. Such are the thoughts. OK - maybe I'm archaic 50 but Our little classroom picture-calendars showed these seasons, and our children's TV backed them up. I'm only talking about the '60s and'70s now - not the 11th century : Our seasons were: Winter - November, December, January Spring - February, March, April Summer - May, June, July Autumn - August, September, October Consider all the poetry, movies, songs and stories which are about or refer to the seasons - they all back this up.
Yes I have seen snow, here in the UK, in May - which is why it is memorable and talked about - because it is unexpected and at odds with the season. Even the explanation of Astronomical seasons above backs this up.

The seasons are defined by the light and weather. June is, and has been for generations, Midsummer. As someone pointed out - refer to Shakespear! Midsummer to me seems more of a reference to the middle of the yr than the middle of a season. Maybe I'm wrong lol. Skip to main content. By The Editors.
