Interfaith Days: Litha
Today is the Summer Solstice, variously called Litha, Alban Hefin, Sun Blessing, Gathering Day, and others. Among many Pagan and Wiccan groups, Litha is a sacred day for celebration of the year's longest day. As this site indicates, "For contemporary Pagans, this is a day of inner power and brightness. Find yourself a quiet spot and meditate on the darkness and the light both in the world and in your personal life. Celebrate the turning of the Wheel of the Year with fire and water, night and day, and other symbols of the opposition of light and dark."

This site and this site give considerable information about its importance, symbolism, and festivities, while this site provides information about the way Midsummer is celebrated in many countries.
