Today is Litha - or, the Summer Solstice - so I wanted to wish you all a blessed Litha!
They say the fairy folk are at large on this date, and that it is one of two days out of the year when the vail between our world and that of the spirits and fairy folk is the thinnest (the other day being Samhain/Halloween, which you may already know). They say that's why the fairy folk are out in such large numbers on this date, and why magic weaved is so much more powerful tonight - and Samhain night - than it is the rest of the year. They say that on these nights you should offer food to the fairy folk to please them and to prevent them from playing nasty tricks on you. I hear they like sweet things best; like honey. I'm leaving out milk and honey for them here... And hopefully some lavender syrup too!
