Waldorf- Celebrating Summer Solstice
Summer sun, summer sun we watch as you set
Sending your long arms of light from the west
Summer sun, summer sun you shine so bright
As you begin your return to the night
Celebrating the Summer Solstice is always bittersweet for me. I know the summer has just begun, yet I know it is the beginning of the end. It helps us remember not to get so attached to the way things are, as everything changes.
We always save the top of our Christmas tree to burn in our Summer Solstice bonfire. We planted sunflowers, and did our circle dance around the fire (well, close to the fire anyway- it was about 90 degrees outside)
Then, we offered our gifts to the fairies, who always leave little trinkets..
