Celebrating the Summer Solstice

Celebrating the Summer Solstice

Often called Litha by modern neo-pagans, the Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year and the beginning of summer according to the astrological calendar. Meteorologists consider June 1st to mark the start of summer and many of us celebrate the start of summer at Memorial Day weekend.

No matter when you personally mark your calendar the long warm days of summer are upon us. Our markets feature an array of wonderful local produce, folks are travelling to the beach or going on camping trips, schools out and there is still plenty of daylight left after work to enjoy the outdoors or do yard chores.

Earth centered spiritualist will participate in an assortment of rites and celebrations to honor the summer season. Here at Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church our CUUPS chapter will be celebrating the Summer Solstice on Tuesday June 25th at the University Gathering. The doors will open at 6:30 and our rite will start at 7pm. For more information contact Cosette B.

All are welcome.
