Bright Blessings, Witches! Today we’re going to delve into the Litha Sabbat’s history. We’ll discuss its origins, how our forebears celebrated the holiday before us, different names, what it celebrates and more. Please note that this post is in reference to celebrations in the Northern Hemisphere occurring on the summer solstice.
Falling between June 19-23 in 2021, Litha celebrates the longest day and shortest night of the year. Also known as the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere (December 20-24 in the southern hemisphere) it’s the beginning of hot and steamy days when Mother Earth is full of life and fueled by the Sun.
