Countdown to Midsummer – Holiday Planner


May 23rd – 29th

  • Decorate home for the holiday / make crafts to decorate home.
  • Take seasonal (outdoor) pictures with family/friends.

June 1st – 8th

  • Firm up ritual plans, if you haven’t already. Will you be attending a festival, local event, a family event, or doing something on your own? If you are planning the ritual, decide on location and script/liturgy.
  • Make sun medallions (if using), as well as any other salt dough or papier-mâché projects (such as a sun-shaped piñata) so they will have time to dry.

June 9th – 15th

  • Make menu plans and grocery list.
  • Find a place to pick/obtain herbs for making an herb (or herb & flower) chaplet for your Midsummer ritual. (See this School of the Seasons newsletter on magical Midsummer herbs and their uses.)

June 16th – the Solstice

  • Shop for menu items.
  • Prepare feast.
  • Obtain herbs to use in ritual and make herb chaplets, etc.
  • Have ritual, make merry, and feast.
