Summer Solstice

12 Things to Do on Summer Solstice
  1. Light a bonfire: The solstice day was traditionally celebrated by dancing around the bonfires. 
  2. Go fishin'
  3. Plant a seed or a tree: Traditionally, to the farmer, the solstice is the midpoint of the growing season, halfway between planting and harvesting, and an occasion for celebration. 
  4. Cook outside: There's nothing as tasty as grilled food. Have a big cook-out on the solstice. 
  5. Camp: Plan a camp-out to enjoy the great outdoors whether it's a tent in the backyard or a cabin in the woods!
  6. Listen to songbirds.
  7. Get pampered. Midsummer Day, near the solstice, was said to make old people look younger. It was also thought that walking barefoot in the dew would keep one's skin from getting chapped. 
  8. Let the light in! With all this extra daylight, hang a gorgeous suncatcher on your window or porch.
