Happy Monday and welcome to this weeks Digest.


Last week we celebrated the summer solstice.  The solstice is recognized around the world in many different ways.  From the crowds that gather at Stonehenge to the yoga inspired in New York's Times Square.   Here are the top 10 celebrations from around the world.  Whatever you did to celebrate, I hope this finds you enjoying your Summer (or for those of you south of the Equator - Winter).
