Over the centuries, the June solstice has inspired countless festivals, midsummer celebrations and religious holidays.
In the Southern Hemisphere, where the June solstice is known as the shortest day of the year, it marks the first day of astronomical winter, but the middle of winter in meteorological terms.
At the top, an offering to our Guardian will be made, coca leaves, olluco, corn, shells, stones and more. Music and warm words will accompany our offering.
Even though most people consider June 21 as the date of the June Solstice, it can happen anytime between June 20 and June 22, depending on which time zone you're in. June 22 Solstices are rare - the last June 22 Solstice in UTC time took place in 1975 and there won't be another one until 2203.
