Samolitus “Summer Festival” – Samos (Summer), Litus (feast, festival), comparable to Midsummer celebrations. Samolitus is observed on the first quarter moon before the summer solstice. This falls around 1 Dumannios normally, otherwise 1 Samonios. Always the first quarter moon before the summer solstice. Also called Îuos Taranes.
Samolitus is a celebration of light over darkness. A theme that will run into the next holiday as well. At this time we are reaching the full force of Samos (summer) over Giamos (winter).
Associated Deity: Taranis! Wielder of lightning and thunder, bearer of truth and the principle of Samos. Was there even another guess?
