Celebrate the Summer Solstice

Happy Midsummer everyone!

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the day that the sun will reach it's highest point of the year. It's also a significant holiday for all our neo-pagan friends out there who will be celebrating in whatever manner suits them. Even though I don't practice paganism, I still can't help taking some time to reflect on the day that was an annual milestone for many of our ancestors.

Here's a clip from a solstice gathering last year at Stonehenge which illustrates how some modern pagans enjoy the holiday:

Today is a great day to light a candle and meditate, or share a meal with friends and family, or have a proper wild party in honor of the season. If you celebrate the solstice, I'd love to hear your plans for today.

At this time of the year it's mid-winter here. We're having mid-year Christmas dinners and rugging up to keep out the cold!
