litha - wheel of the year

Summer Solstice – 21st/22nd of June. 

Midsummer or the Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and such most powerful day for  sun god deities. As well as the Sabbat celebrating the peaking powers  of the Sun, it’s also a time to express thanks for the life giving light, and warmth which will ripen the fruit on the trees and the wheat in the fields for a bountiful harvest at the end of the growing season.
