Midsummer, also known as Summer Solstice, Litha or St. John’s Day celebrates the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. The Goddess becomes Mother Earth and the God takes His place as Father Sun. The two know work together for a green and fertile Earth. This festival celebrates sharing, giving, kindness and helping one another. Also, our fairy friends (lightening bugs) are busy laboring over our hearts, spiritual gardens helping guide us so that we are performing nice acts for others (they make it easy for us). With this in mind, we must also honor Midsummer Night.
