Midsummer

At Midsummer, we now have the world in full bloom. The early harvests of the year are starting to come back into the larder, the animals are busy fattening up as quickly as possible, the streams are flowing smoothly, the fields are growing, and all seems light and warm.

As with other solstices, we celebrate this rite in the Norse culture, with particular attention to the Aesir deities Sif and Thor.
