The summer solstice occurs exactly when the Earth's axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun at its maximum of 23° 26'. Though the summer solstice is an instant in time, the term is also colloquially used like Midsummer to refer to the day on which it occurs. Except in the polar regions (where daylight is continuous for many months during the spring and summer), the day on which the summer solstice occurs is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight. Thus the seasonal significance of the Summer solstice is in the reversal of the gradual shortening of nights and lengthening of days. The summer solstice occurs in June in the Northern Hemisphere and in December in the Southern Hemisphere.
Takashi Murakami (村上 隆 Murakami Takashi?, born in Tokyo) is a prolific contemporaryJapanese artist who works in both fine arts media—such as painting—as well as digital and commercial media. He blurs the boundaries between high and low art. He appropriates popular themes from mass media and pop culture, then turns them into thirty-foot sculptures, "Superflat" paintings, or marketable commercial goods such as figurines or phone caddies.
Mărțișorul este un mic obiect de podoabă legat de un șnur împletit dintr-un fir alb și unul roșu, care apare în tradiția românilor și a unor populații învecinate. Femeile și fetele primesc mărțișoare și le poartă pe durata lunii martie, ca semn al sosirii primăverii.
Împreună cu mărțișorul se oferă adesea și flori timpurii de primăvară, cea mai reprezentativă fiind ghiocelul.
