Happy Solstice!

In ancient Baltic traditions, the Sun Goddess Saule rules the heavens and rides across the sky in her golden and silver chariot, pulled by twin stallions.
"Saule, with her two gold horses,
Rides up the stone mountain
Never heated, never weary.
Never resting on the way."
Her festival was held on the Summer Solstice - bonfires were lit, blessings were asked, flower wreaths signifying the sun were assembled, and a special meal was shared.  Celebrants would stay up the entire night to witness her rising.
"The Sun dances over the silver mountain
Silver shoes she hath on her feet. . ."
