Summer Solstice Celebration at the SCMM
|Join us for a Summer Solstice Celebration at the SC Maritime Museum on Friday, June 22, 6-8 pm.
Respected medical opinions agree that the closer one is to the sun or the more exposure one has to the sun, the greater is one’s feeling of well-being.
In medical parlance, this is called the “vitamin D sufficiency syndrome.”
That is why there is much wisdom to the often-seen bumper sticker that states, “Mountain People are Wise; Ocean People are Happy.”
The mountain folks are up there in the hills with lots of trees, resulting in shade, and plenty of time to think, while the ocean folks are frolicking in the sand, taking a dip, soaking up the rays, not thinking about much except being cheerful.
This being the case, it is prescribed that for a happier outlook, people should be more exposed to the sun.
And what better time is there to do this than at Summer Solstice? On that date (June 21 in our Northern Hemisphere) the sun reaches its maximum elevation in the sky meaning there is more sunlight on June 21 than on any other day of the year. Oh, happy, happy! It’s the beginning of summer! Let’s celebrate, have a party, and maximize our well-being with more sun exposure.
In many cultures, Summer Solstice not only encourages parties, but is also recognized as a sign of fertility. That is why June is still considered to be a month for weddings. The full moon in June is called the Honey Moon, and that fact has evolved into the after-wedding time the couple spends not working being called a honeymoon. So, Summer Solstice is also a time to celebrate love.
To maximize catching some rays and to celebrate love, the South Carolina Maritime Museum is having a Summer Solstice Party on Friday, June 22, at the Museum (729 Front Street in Georgetown) starting at 6PM (still long before sundown) and lasting until 8 PM. There will be plenty there to be happy about: good food, a variety of libations, music, and many other lovely people besides yourself to frolic with. Don’t miss this chance to ramp up your vitamin D sufficiency, and to start off the summer right.
The party is open to the public. Tickets are $20 for museum members and $25 for non-members if purchased in advance. Tickets will be $30 at the door for both members and non-members.
