Which Day is the End of Summer?

Which day is the end of summer? One of my calendars has Thursday and two of them have Friday? Which is correct?

I looked and found that it depends on where you live. If you are in Europe then the last day of summer is on Friday. The end of summer is marked by the solstice which happens just after midnight GMT. So, in all of the US it will still be Thursday when summer ends and fall begins.

In any case, we are approaching the end of summer for another year. .

Yellow Rose, Rose Bush, Fall Color, November Color, November RosesOne thing I will definitely be looking forward to are fall roses. My roses have had a tough summer and since the weather has cooled I am starting to get some nice new blooms.

And of course, as summer is ending that means that my brother’s birthday is also approaching. I must remember to wish him a happy birthday.
