    Summer solstice 2022: What is it and how is it celebrated? - CBBC Newsround.

    We get the most hours of daylight on this day because of the position of the Earth in relation to the Sun.

    It occurs when the Earth's geographical pole - on either the northern or southern hemisphere - becomes most inclined towards the Sun.

    When the summer solstice takes place in the northern hemisphere, the Sun will reach its highest possible point.
