The summer solstice is probably the most popular holiday people will be celebrating this Friday, on June 21. This day marks the north pole’s maximum tilt toward the sun. Because this date also results in the longest length of daylight out of the year — for us who live in the northern hemisphere — it’s also known as Daylight Appreciation Day. Here are some car-themed ways to observe this holiday, whether you’re shopping for a new ride or enjoying your current one.

Roll down the windows

UVB rays are necessary for triggering your body’s production of vitamin D, as The New York Times confirms. Because most vehicles’ glass windows block UVB rays, they significantly impede your skin’s exposure to the full benefits of sunlight. Drive with the windows down when the weather allows, to help boost the amount of sunlight your epidermis encounters.
