Have a family game day - have a hoola hoop race, play lawn darts, run relay races, play cornhole, throw horseshoes
Watch the sun rise & set - this is the longest day of the year - enjoy all of it!
Want to celebrate by yourself? Light a single candle and practice flame meditation.
Don't forget to do a tarot draw. Ask what your current strength is, what is abundant, and what you should focus on as the days grow darker.
Journal in your Book of Shadows or Sabbat Notebook about things you are thankful for and how you plan to prepare for the coming dark part of the year.
