On 22nd December 2010, it will be the Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere. A Solstice is an astronomical event, but is most commonly identified as the longest or shortest day of the year, a mid-season celebration to acknowledge the turning of the wheel.
For some families who don't wish to celebrate a religious holiday in December, Solstice gatherings and gifts are a popular alternative.
