My village celebrates Litha probably more than Beltane! The 20th and 23rd are normal workdays; but at the weekend the village erupts with colour. There is the Scarecrow Festival. All year the children of the village,helped by many adults!, have been making very realistic, and life-sized Scarecrows. On Saturday they will be all over the village.In every nook and cranny,in the branches of trees. And just about every garden in the village will have a Scarecrow.Hundreds of people from all over Yorkshire come to the village during Litha.On the Sunday there will be Maypole dancing (again!), stalls selling all kinds of goods,mostly home-made. A brass band> And prodigious amounts of beer and cider!
The colours are many, but mainly pink (wild roses) and blue (Grape Hyacinths). My village is very old, well over two thousand years,and, although there are two churches (CofE and Methodist) the village is very much Pagan!
If you wish to see pictures the Scarecrows of past years, Google "Gildersome Scarecrow Fest".
Oh,yes! Litha is a great weekend in my village.
