Pinkie Pie Says Goodnight: Summer Solstice

Good evening everyone! Although a new episode arrives courtesy of Australia, I don't want to forget Equestria's oft-neglected princess.

Tomorrow is the longest day of the year and a celebration of Equestria's leader. Hope you all enjoy a creative day as we see what fans have cooked up.

The original creative behind Pinkie Pie Says Goodnight would be Undead Niklos :iconundead-niklos:. My thanks to him for letting me continue the tradition and to all of you for reading!

Oh, 'Tia. Your mane being powered by the spirits of the condemned is pretty tame compared to some suggestions I've heard. Fame attracts rumors, and most rumors are either salacious or dark.

I think Day Breaker might have been in charge of the Summer Solstice this year. I have only just recovered from melting into a puddle.

This was a really nice one Silver-Quill; I recently started up a new semester of grad school and was feeling slightly stressed. This comic helped put me at ease because I am going into the counseling field and as such try to remain a light for the clients that I work with. I know I have many long days ahead of me but I plan on keeping positive and pushing on forward. So thank you for this encouragement in the form a cheery Pink Pony and a Wise and Respectful Ruler. :D
Not only is the summer solstice the longest day of the year, it's also the first day when the nights start getting longer. A transition & giving way to night, and a reaffirmation that Luna's remembered and valued. Not that I've heard anyone, including Celestia, bother to put it that way.

Wonder if there's a Winter Night Celebration, during the winter solstice? Luna's been back a few years now, so even if there wasn't one in her absence, I have to wonder why they're not celebrating it now? 

Although I suppose traditionally, Christmas was used by the early Christians to take over and subvert the winter solstice/mid-winter celebrations from the European pagans, though the date has drifted to the 25th in modern times. So maybe Hearth's Warming day replaced a Winter Night/Solstice Celebration from the first two-sisters era?

But really Celestia, how does your mane flow like that? ^^;
Squirrels. It's piloted by flying squirrels

Such a great leader is Celestia.
MLP-Silver-Quill, I do not know you.  
You are but a distant purveyor of bedtime wellwishing comics and noted mellifluous-voice-haver.


But if you display the same spirit in life that comes across in your writing it would seem that you are a thoughtful and humane man.

Such a beautiful speech. Bravo!

Thunderlane will surely inspire upcoming generations just as much as the previous Wonderbolt before him.

it wouldn't be surprising if Celestia were interested in gothic stories & stuff as she's seen much more darker stuff in her (many) years apart from Nightmare Moon.

Even before the event, celestia has already given a wonderful speech.
