As if your workday didn't seem long enough, Summer Solstice 2011 -- the longest day of the year -- is tomorrow.
Summer solstice marks the time when the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky.
Tomorrow at 17:16 Universal Time, and 12:16 in Eastern Standard Time, New Yorkers would be well-advised to leave their desks for an extra long lunch in what will seem like the day that never ends.
While Tuesday may feel like the slowest, most mind-numbing march toward bedtime, it's actually a cause for celebration if you're a Christian or a Pagan.
For many Christian communities, summer solstice marks the festival of St. John the Baptist.
And in an older tradition-cum-New Age, their Pagan counterparts celebrate Midsummer.
Bonfires and feasts, replete with pre-Christian libations and cured meats, are common in the celebrations of both traditions.
