With the official start of Summer this Sunday, June 21 at 1:45 AM EST (yes we’re counting down the minutes), we thought it’d be nice to give our readers some first day of Summer fun facts!
- The first day of Summer (or first day of Solstice) is typically the longest day of the year.
- For years 2009 and 2013 the first day of Summer actually occurs a day earlier on June 20 for people in the Mountain and Pacific time zones.
- San Francisco has FOUR longest days a year, from June 19-22, occurring before, during, and after the solstice, with the same minutes of daylight.
The changing of the seasons has an effect on all of us, and often times is associated with new advertising campaigns. This interesting ClickZ article describes how some of the big summer campaigns are tied to seasonal products, such as the promotion of Lands’ End swimwear line on NBC’s “I’m a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here” (Speidi in Lands’ End?).
How is your advertising campaign changing with the seasons?
