Missummer (Midsumarsblot) - Asatru

Description A celebration of the Summer Solstice, when the power of the Sun is at its height. It was at this time that most foreign trade was conducted, as well as shipping, fishing expeditions, and raiding activity. It was not without its dark side. Midsummer was recognized as the longest day of the year; thus, the year begins to age after this time and the days grow progressively shorter.
