The summer solstice, also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits. Aka the time of the year with the most light- the longest day and shortest night. This year it is today, Wednesday 21/7 2017. Midsummer (high summer) is celebrated within this week, ranging from the 20th to the 25th. It is at time of the year associated with major festivities here in the North, when you gather with friends and family and celebrate, often with pagan heritage and in a celebration of light and fertility. Talking about fertility, if you are non Swedish – open up a new window and google “midsommar stång”.
