June 21: Greenland’s National Day

Greenland will celebrate its national day on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. 

The day, which was established in 1983, is celebrated in all Greenland homes via a morning song, a flag hoisting, cultural performances and Kaffemik – a traditional form of open-house socialising where guests stay as long as it takes to drink two cups of coffee before making way for others.
