Summer is here!
Summer officially arrived at 5:14am this morning.
Summer solstice marks the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. On average, there is a one-month lag between the solstice and peak summer temperatures. That’s why July is almost always the hottest month of the year in most locations.
Some refer to it as “the longest day of the year,” but to be precise, it’s the day with the most daylight because every “day” has 24 hours. The amount of daylight will be roughly consistent for a few more days before shrinking each day until the winter solstice in late December.
Fall officially begins September 22nd.
French’s Ketchup is debuting a new limited-edition ketchup-flavoured popsicle in Leamington to celebrate the first week of Summer.
The Frenchsicle will be available at popup locations in Vancouver, Toronto, and Leamington until June 24th.
The company said the Frenchsicle’s “savoury tomato flavour is perfectly balanced with a hint of salty sweetness.” They are made from 100 per cent Canadian tomatoes.
French’s Ketchup will hand out Frenchsicles at Seacliffe Park on Friday 11:30-2:30pm.
For every Frenchsicle given away, French’s will donate two meals to Food Banks Canada.
Hey Canadian friends, your favorite condiment just got a whole lot cooler 🍅🧊
