About the event

The traditions of Litha appear to be borrowed from many cultures. Most ancient cultures celebrated the summer solstice in some way. For modern-day pagans, Litha is a day of inner power and brightness. Some people find a quiet spot and meditate about the light and dark forces in their world. Some other observers, particularly those with children, celebrate this holiday outside. Lastly, some observers choose to observe Litha more traditionally, and they would hold a fire ritual. This might include a large bonfire or a small fire in a fire-safe pot in one’s house. Litha is also considered a good time to practice love magic or get married.
