Declare the Summer Solstice a Co. Solar Day!

    1. Petition by

      Kelly Odonnell

A Holiday called "Solar Day" will raise awareness about Solar Energy and can be celebrated with Solabrations, parades and festivals at the start of Summer. We can show Colorado is the leader and the Heart of Solar Energy in America
We choose to celebrate the Sun because it gives us light to see and it grows our food and keeps us warm.
Like Earth Day, celebrating the high point of the Sun(Summer Solstice) will raise awareness, understanding and alignment to Solar Energy and be a remarkable inspirational teaching tool.
Celebrating the Sun is something everyone on the world can do regardless of Religion or nationality and it will bring people together and create a better environment.

      Talked to Mark Udall+ policy advisor Jill Ozarski at a tree planting event. They thought it was a great Idea and Mr. Udall told me how he had just been to Chimney rock and saw how it aligned on the Solstice. He advised me to contact local representatives Randy Fischer and John Kefalas to see if they can give me advice on how to move forward with this on the State Level. I hope they can help.

      I would visit for the celebration and hope to get the holiday in FL. It would be more meaningful and valuable to me than many of the current holidays. Give up one of the military ones if you need an exchange. If nothing else, move Christmas to the winter solstice and call it Solar Day.
