Litha is the Summer Solstice and takes place on the 20th- 24th of June in the northern hemisphere and 20th - 24th December in the southern hemisphere. This is the start of summer and the beginning of much warmer, sunnier days. This is when the earth is at its peak, filled with life and happiness, all powered by the nurturing energy of the sun.
Litha can also be known as Midsummer, especially in Nordic and Slavic traditions. It is the longest day of the year and a chance for us all to bask in the powerful energy of the sun. It is a celebration of positivity and all the food, crystals and activities aim to reflect this.
