Midsummer, Summer solstice, Litha, Alban Hefin. The longest day. It's been celebrated throughout history all over the world and marks a turning point in the year. Many prehistoric monuments survive to this day to mark this festival and the ancient tradition of having Midsummer bonfires can still be found in some areas. It is also thought to be a magical night when the veil between worlds is thin.
Easy ways to celebrate it include watching sunrise or sunset, having a barbecue or a fire and collecting healing herbs, to name just a few.
Even though the wheel of the year turns towards the darker part of the cycle, the sun will still be there. It will always rise again, bringing new light to each day.
It's a little early but today I chose to make a crystal grid in the sunlight and pick fresh strawberries from the garden. Whichever name you call it by and however you celebrate it, I hope you have a good day.
