Midsummer Is Upon Us!
In the Northern Hemisphere Summer Solstice is the longest day of sunlight and the shortest night of the year. It is a fire festival; a celebration of solar energy. “Solstice” means “sun-stopping”, and refers to the point that the suns appears to stop and reverses direction. At this time, the sun rises in the northeast and sets in the northwest, visible in the sky for longer than usual.
