Thread Name: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Here in France the Summer Solstice is celebrated with "Fete de la Musique" - the French love ANY excuse for a day of partying - so we were playing dulcimers and harmonic flutes from 10am until midnight.

Now is the time for a week or more of "Feus de la St Jean" - St John Bonfires (ie. more excuse for more parties)... Help!

Other years we have celebrated atop Rough Tor and Helman Tor in Cornwall (You can see photos at http://pilgrim.ifrance.com ).
