Indolent Welcomes International Month of June

piyestaliciousAh, how time flies when, well, when it does. Around the world, people are getting ready for the month-long International Month of June.

Named for Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage, June is a centuries-old Catholic tradition started by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Accordingly, both the Summer and Winter Solstices are celebrated on this month, being essentially the same thing.

Understandably, some cultures like the Jews, Muslims and Hindus will only participate half-heartedly since they have their own calendar systems, but it’s the spirit of the thing, really.

From today until the thirtieth, let us keep the June spirit alive by making each day a day in June.

Fun June Fact: Today is Madaraka Day in Kenya, commemorating the day that Kenya achieved self-rule, and, eventually, independence. Whether that was a good idea or not is not the point.
