June 20: Midsummer

June 20, 2012 is the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. Various celebrations have been held the world over for centuries, many including bonfires, dances, and, of course, feasts..

For your midsummer celebration, you can join in local parties or research special traditions from your heritage. Or you can simply hold a barbecue and bonfire. As a former English major, I’d also recommend reading William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (or at least watching the movie!).

“The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth;
you made both summer and winter.”

Psalm 74:16-17
