MERRY solstice TO 1 & TO ALL!

A deep bow of appreciation to all who honored the Goddess this year by celebrating the Solstice at one of her holiest of holy ancient sites: Stonehenge.

According to an educated dude from the University of Sheffield, however, we should be celebrating at Stonehenge at Winter not Summer Solstice.  Archaeology Prof. Mike Parker Pearson says -- and it makes sense -- that December 21 was a scary time for Neolithic people.  They killed their animals then, and felt a strong need to gang together against the wintry winds soon to howl around and beat against their cabin doors.
