How do you welcome summer?

Later this month, millions of people around the world will mark the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and an occasion celebrated since ancient times.

For others, summer begins with a more personal ritual -- the first baseball game, that first iced coffee, or a start-of-summer party.


We want to hear how you welcome summer. Share your photos from years past and from your 2013 celebrations and you could be featured on CNN Celebrates -- our colorful series exploring the cultural events that bring us all together.
