Description

Summer Solstice Midsummer/Litha/Alban Hefin, on the summer solstice Celebrated with the lighting of bonfires, feasting and merrymaking. Litha, is one of the eight solar holidays or sabbats of Neopaganism, especially Wicca, though the New Forest traditions (those referred to as British Traditional Wicca) tend to use the traditional name Midsummer. It is celebrated on the Summer Solstice or close to it. The holiday is considered the turning point at which summer reaches its height and the sun shines longest, but at the same time it is said we are reminded that the days will soon begin to shorten Thu Dec 21 16:28 GMT 2017
