    dunno if this is the right forum, but i didn´t find anywhere more suitable to post something about ancient holidaze determined by the cycle of nature!

    well.....
    due to my finnish roots (if anyone wants to know more: http://www.uta.fi/~th63387/juhannus.html ) i will definitely celebrate the longest day/shortest night of the year

    maybe go swimming late at night
    maybe have a bonfire
    maybe have sex
    maybe get drunk
    (got my own li'l rituals..)
    and most definitely hang out in nature
    .

    .
    to get in touch with the healing heat.wave that is kicking off summer in europe right now



    is anyone else doing anything on this special night? or do you find it worth celebrating at all?

    wow & what a magical night it was! as i was driving to the gathering last night, i noticed lightening in the distance. everything has been so dry here & i remember thinking how incredible it would be to receive some rain on the solstice, a little hope for the summer crops. later once we were in the lodge, we could hear thunder above & then powerful storm followed.....yes blessings indeed!
