Wednesday, June 6
June 6, 1944 was the day that Allied forces invaded northern France during World War II. Their famous beach landing not only changed the tide of the war, it was also the largest seaborne invasion in history. The arrival of 156,000 brave Americans, British, and Canadians on the shores of Normandy is remembered for the intensive planning and sacrifice involved in that fateful day.
Thursday, June 14
Flag Day celebrates the adoption of the United States flag. On June 14, 1777, the Flag Resolution of 1777 was enacted by the Second Continental Congress. Reflect on the meaning of the US flag on this patriotic holiday!
Sunday, June 17
Father’s Day is a holiday that celebrates fathers, father figures, and fatherhood. Don’t forget to call the father figures in your life to thank them for all they have done for you.
American Eagle Day
Wednesday, June 20
American Eagle Day commemorates the anniversary of the selection of the bald eagle as the national symbol of the United States. The holiday also celebrates the return of the animal to its natural habitat and the American values and culture that the bird represents. In 1995 President Bill Clinton and Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist recognized the first American Eagle Day. Since then, forty-nine states have recognized the holiday.
Thursday, June 21
You may have heard that the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. You may not, however, know the scientific reason behind this occurrence. The summer solstice, sometimes referred to as midsummer, happens when one of the Earth’s poles reaches its most dramatic inclination towards the sun. This event is celebrated all over the world and has been a cause of celebration since ancient times. The event occurs twice a year – once in each hemisphere.
Have a great first month of summer celebrating these upcoming June holidays!
