Summer Solstice

Date Celebrated: - June 21st or 22nd

The Summer Solstice is when Witches celebrate the strength of the God in all his passion and glory. This is because on this day (which is the longest day in the year) the God reaches his peak of power. On this day bale fires may be lit. The Oak King and Holly King who fought at Yule return to fight again. This time the Holly King becomes the victor in the battle and reigns until Yule. Witches make protective solar amulets during this season to take care of both family and traditional concerns. All sacred plants Familiars and family pets find a special place of honor at this festival, and witches bring their pets into the magickal circle for blessing and protective magick.
