Yesterday was the first day of summer.The first day of summer is often said to be the longest day of the year. This is because people believe that there is more sunlight on this day than on any other. It is true that the days have been getting longer and the nights shorter. The sun is higher in the sky and takes a longer path across our sky, giving us more daylight. That, combined with the more direct rays of sunshine, give us the warm summer season.
