June 21 -- Summer Solstice -- Litha or Midsummer

On this day, the noon of the year and the longest day, light and life are abundant. We focus outward, experiencing the joys of plenty, tasting the first fruits of the season. In some traditions the sacred marriage of the Goddess and God is celebrated (in others, this is attributed to the springtime holidays). Rhea, the Mountain Mother of Crete, has breathed out all creation. It is also the festival of the Chinese Goddess of Light, Li.

Midsummer is one of the most ancient, widespread and joyful Pagan festivals. The Sun rises to the height of its power on the Summer Solstice, and Midsummer Eve is filled with fairy mischief and magic. The author reveals the origins and customs of this enchanting holiday with chapters on myths and lore, Midsummer magic and divination, traditional summertime treats, seasonal rituals and Midsummer herb craft.

Midsummer of the Summer Solstice will take you really deep into the traditions of this amazing holiday.
