The Summer Solstice is coming up soon, on Thursday June 21st. I love this holiday for its sheer joy and exuberance, and even wrote a book about it--one of the Llewellyn Sabbat series.
The Solstice is a celebration of abundance and energy and all the green (and pink and purple) growing things of summer. Even if you're not a Witch, you can get together with friends and have a BBQ or a picnic, or go to the shore if you are lucky enough to live near the ocean.
I'll actually be in San Diego on the Solstice, so hopefully I'll get to the ocean with my daughter Jenn and her guy Ian, and maybe my parents. Jenn's a Pagan too, so maybe we'll even get to do some little ritual together. (The one with Blue Moon Circle will have to wait until I get home.)
The book is still available (here's the Amazon Link) but I thought just for fun I'd give away one of my last few copies--signed, of course. This will be a quickie giveaway, so I can get the book mailed out in time for the Solstice. As always, just fill out the Rafflecopter form.
