    Greetings,

    Please, how do you say “the summer solstice” & “the winter solstice” (the longest and shortest day of the year respectively)?

    All the best, and many thanks,

    Simon

    Topical question! :D

    winter solstice = یلدا

    From Aryanpour Dictionary:
    the summer solstice - انقلاب تابستانی، دراز روز، خوریست تابستانی
    the winter solstice - انقلاب زمستانی، خوریست زمستانی، کوته روز
