WHY FATHER'S DAY AND SUMMER SOLSTICE GO TOGETHER LIKE DRESS SOCKS AND SNEAKERS

  1. The daylight lasts so long you start to wonder if it will ever end
    Just like dad's stories.
  2. At 5 o'clock, your shadow will be longer than it was yesterday
    Same as dad's 5 o'clock shadow.
  3. The sun rises before anyone is awake
    Except dad. He already walked the dog, had a coffee, read the paper, shat and shaved.
  4. At noon the tilt of the earth is at it's most inclined position
    The same time dad is at his most inclined position on the couch.
  5. There's nothing funny about the significance solstice has for life on this planet.
    Dad's jokes are also a significant factor in your life.
  6. Solstice is celebrated with bonfires
    Father's day is celebrated with barbecues.
