June Redwork Snowman Quilt Block

There are two theories about how June got its name.  The name “June” may come from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and the wife of Jupiter.  Another theory is that the name “June” comes from the Latin word juniores, meaning “younger ones,” as opposed to maiores (“elders”) - the possible origin of "May."  The month of June is one of four months with a length of 30 days.  It has the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest daylight hours in the Southern Hemisphere.  


The sun is rich
   And gladly pays
In golden hours,
   Silver days.

And long green weeks
   That never end.
School's out.  The time
   Is ours to spend.

There's Little League,
   Hopscotch, the creek,
And, after supper,

That live-long light
   Is like a dream,
And freckles come
   Like flies to cream.
              John Updike
