The reason I ask is because I'm always saying to myself, "I can't believe I haven't put away winter clothes yet and it's not even midsummer!" (as an example)

This was the only topic I could find that relates to the summer solstice. I'd like to wish everyone a happy summer solstice. For me, it's a time of disquiet. There was rain last night and the temperature has a tinge of fall to it. I feel sad and am dragging myself around. But I have a date to take my grandsons to the swimming pool later today so that will surely cheer me up. What are your summer solstice plans?

I found out the full Strawberry Moon is on Thursday. That explains a lot.  :-\

August 2 marks 6 weeks since the beginning of summer (June 21). I'm thinking it might be a good time to celebrate midsummer. Or is there an ancient holiday celebrated around that time? Maybe this will relieve the confusion, for me anyway.

August 1 is Lammas for Christians, Lughnasadh for Neopagans.

Summer Solstice is getting close, 20 days.


Then we celebrate "ShorterDays".   :laugh:

The solstice is this week! It's been nearly a year since I used my tarot cards; I'm thinking about getting them out, if I can remember where they are.

I wonder if you can order lightning bugs to be sent in the mail. Sure miss them from my childhood.

A good thing about shorter days: I might be able to get a little more sleep in the mornings.

I never feel any immediate noticeable change with either solstice. The reason Dec. 21 is great is because it suggests the light, literally, at the end of the tunnel. I'm trying not to think about how we're heading toward its forbidding opposite.
