Rome will say good-bye to their VERY long festival of Megalesia–honoring their Mother of the Gods Cybele for today is the last.
Hopping over to Babylon, we shall see an observance and festival for their Goddess named Bau. Bau was drawn with the head of a Dog. Her name in Babylonian language means ‘bark’.
The Celts will be having their traditional celebration because the sun shall dance on this day.
And in Norse territory, they shall call this day Sigrblot for it is the first day of summer in their Calendar.
