First Day of Summer is Wednesday, June 21

The 2017 Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is at 11:24 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20 (Central Time). The Summer Solstice marks the onset of summer, at the time of the longest day. Solstice is derived from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still). wikipedia
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, solstice is from the Latin solstitium, with sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), referring to the sun appearing to stop at this time.
The Summer Solstice ranges in date from June 20 – 22 in part because of the difference between the Gregorian calendar system, which normally has 365 days, and the tropical year, which has approximately 365.242199 days.
