Advent calendar Day 21 - the longest day of the year.

It's the summer solstice here in Oz - sunrise at 4.50am and sunset at 6.43pm. On a day like today it's hard to imagine that it's downhill from here on, as the days gradually shorten into darkness and winter.
Of course in the northern hemisphere it's the opposite - from now on the daylight will slowly get longer as the sun lingers more each day.
