Today is a day when the shadows flee from the sun.   While we civilized folk tend to be a bit blasé about it, or more interested in the scientific explanations of why it is notable, it is a traditional day of festivity and celebration.  The Celts celebrated with bonfires, Christians attempted to replace Litha with the feast of John the Baptist, and it is also the festival of Li, the Chinese Goddess of light.  Folklore tells us that on Midsummer’s Night, the field and forest elves, sprites, and faeries abound in great numbers.  And yet there is an awareness that after today, every day will be just a little shorter and the darkness will creep over us just a little earlier each evening.

I hope there is some sunshine and joy in your day today and every day
