10 Great Ways to Celebrate Litha/ Summer Solstice

Here’s a list of some good ways to celebrate the Summer Solstice this week –

  1. Strawberries are in season, so have some strawberries and cream
  2. Have a BBQ, bonfire or picnic.
  3. Do a ritual to honour the Sun or other deities of Summer.
  4. The Bees are busy making this year’s honey, so it’s a great time to make your Mead for the year.
  5. Elder flowers are in season so it’s also a good time to make Elderflower cordial.
  6. Go camping, maybe at Stonehenge if you can, and get up to watch the Sunrise.
  7. Do a beach clean
  8. Make an offering of rushes to Manannan, god of the sea.
  9. Collect herbs such as St John’s Wort for herbalism
  10. Decorate your altar with symbols of the season such as Oak Leaves and Sunflower Seeds.

Have a good one.
