Litha, also called Midsummer and Summer Solstice,
celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Earth. This
is the longest day of the year, and will fall somewhere
between the dates above depending on when the Sun is at
its northern most point. From this day on, the days will
wane, growing shorter and shorter until Yule. The trees
and fields are full and prosperous. The young animals and
birds are learning to frolic in the fields and trees. This
is a time of the Faery, when a festival called the Feast of
the Faery is held. It is believed that at twilight on this
day, the portals between worlds open and the Faery folk
my pass into our world. Welcome them on this day and
they may bless you with their wisdom and joy. This is a
time to look internally at the seeds you've planted that
should be at full bloom.
