Welcome June

Today is the first day of June and it is such a wonderful month.  According to Wikkipedia June is the 6th month of the year with a length of 30 days and it is sometimes called "The Season of the Unicorn".  I found some of these interesting facts about June and thought I would share them:
  1. June is the month with the longest daylight hours in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest daylight hours in the Southern Hemisphere.
  2. June's birthstone is the "pearl" and other gemstones that are celebrated this month are Moonstone and Alexandrite.  The meaning is health and longevity.
  3. June's birth flower is the Rose.
  4. For those of you who follow astrological signs the sun rises in Gemini and ends in Cancer.
  5. The summer solstice is celebrated on June 21st
  6. Father's Day in Canada and the US is celebrated onthe 3rd Sunday in June.
  7. June is sometimes called the "marriage" month
  8. June is a very common first name for women (#176 out of 4276) and also a very common last name for both men and women (#8724 out of 88799). (1990 U.S. Census)
  9. Famous women named June included June Alyson, June Lockhart, June Cleaver (sure there's more)
  10. Stampin Up releases their retired lists in June (see previous note).
So there's a few facts about June.
