Happy Midsummer, everyone! The sun is high in the sky, the air is all warm and friendly. Let's stay up real late, then we can build some fires and roll them down the hills!.
It's been done forever, it's still being done now and it will always be done. We'll talk about where the word Litha comes from and what the holiday means for modern Pagans. Also, interestingly, Midsummer continues to be very important in mainstream societies in different cultures around the world! There are even some sects of Christianity that are nutty enough to sanction it!
Here's to the sun, and to the God who lives in all of us.
Do good. Enjoy the show.
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include It's A Bautiful Day:"Hot Summer Day"; Todd Alan: "The Longest Day"; Michael Renauro: "In the Darkness"; Heather Nova: "Throwing Fire at the Sun"; Blue Cheer: "Summertime Blues" and more.
