Thread Name: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Yes of course the day has always been there Alex and will be long after we depart. It's a bit like; "Columbus didn't find America, it wasn't lost, it was always there."

However the earliest men who had a degree of interlect other than eat, sleep and reproduce charted at least in their own minds, if not by some method of recording, the changes in seasons, day and night length.So these celebrations remain as part of a culture that existed for possibly hundreds of thousands of years, maybe longer.

Go for it lads and lasses, celebrate the solstice in your own way.
