Those living in the northern hemisphere can celebrate the longest day of the year on the summer solstice, around June 21.

Yes and no, in the Northern Hemisphere June 21st is the longest day of the year but June 21st is also the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere, it is the longest day of the year in terms of the amount of daylight hours because the northern hemisphere is tilted to its maximum towards the sun. For simplicity we usually refer to the 21st of June as being the longest day, but sometimes it can actually be on the 20th of June or on the 22nd of June. For simplicity: For the northern hemisphere = Yes For the southern hemisphere = No
