Litha altar, 2014
I used to hate Litha.  Not because I had anything against Midsummer but because, growing up in Phoenix, summer=hot=miserable.  Last year though while taking a Sabbat class it hit me for the first time that Litha represents the longest day of the year.  So, in essence, it also means that summer will start to recede and bring back the cooler weather.  No more burning your fingers on the car door handle, no more $425.00 electricity bills to keep your house at 80 degrees.  How can I not get behind that?

Unfortunately it also means that my favorite sabbat, Yule, has been tainted.  Being the longest night of the year it means that the days will soon warm up again.  

Maybe I need to leave central arizona...
