Merry Litha


Today is Litha's day, also known as Midsummer or, more commonly, Summer's Solistice. Old Litha was celebrated at the 25th, a long long time ago, but with the difference between the Julian calendar year (365.2500 days) and the tropical year (365.2422 days) the date is changing, and this wheel's turn it happens to be occuring... right now. Unfortunately times change, and instead of celebrating around the Midsummer's pole, here in Portugal most people will "celebrate" by seeing a soccer game between Portugal and I-dunno-who to the world cup. Still, I wish you can have a merry Litha.
