The calendars mostly call this day the day that Summer begins... Why then do some call it Midsummer you ask? Because according to old folklore calendars, Summer begins May 1st and ends on August 1st placing this day, June 21st, exactly in the middle... Hence... Midsummer. To me this does tend to make more sense since all days following today gradually begin getting shorter
Today is a day full of magick and folklore and tradition...Soak up the sun, eat fresh vegetables and fruits. Celebrate the earth and it's bounty. Wear flowers in your hair.
