Some Wiccans celebrate summer solstice because they believe that this is the time when they can experience abundance. In some places in Europe, the summer solstice is seriously celebrated because it is not often that they experience the sun’s rays. Some people feel that summer solstice means fertility so they also make it a point to celebrate so that they can experience being fulfilled at work, in their personal lives, finances, and so much more.
Some even celebrate it to the point that they can barely go home because of the number of drinks that they have taken. Some may also write down the things that they are thankful for so that they will be reminded of their blessings.
