The summer solstice marks the start of the summer season. On this day of the year the sun is at its highest point, its rays are very inclined with respect to our hemisphere and therefore the day has its maximum duration. After June 21, however, the duration of light hours will begin to decrease.
Since long time, this day was associated with rites and parties.
To welcome the season you can do a very simple ritual, that is: greet the sun with open arms so you capture the energy of the sun inside our body. This rite is also a Yoga position and serves to energize the body. Positive energy is the most important thing to feel good and start the summer season.
In Sweden, the beginning of summer is celebrated with the famous Midsummer party, so important that they made it a national day of Sweden instead of June 6th. This day can also be called St. Hans Day.
