Litha 2017

We hail to Midsummer, the Summer Solstice, also known as Litha or Alban Hefin. Where the sun reaches its zenith creating the longest day. A worship of the sun and all of its glory before the days become shorter on their journey toward the Winter Solstice.

Litha is a day of sun worship and the Sun God who's element is Fire, displayed in all its radiant colors of red, yellow, orange and gold. It's ruled by the Holly King who re-battles and slays his twin, the Oak King, and it's a time of celebrating the power of the sun and riches of the earth.

Litha should be enjoyed in the basking sun. A festival with nature and homage to life in general. No matter how you celebrate Litha, take the time to feel the power of the sun, its energy and the positive light it emits.Remember to pick your herbs today and create a bonfire or two.

Blessed Litha to All
