.. is today! (if you're not Down Under)

Anyone here planning to attend a big bonfire, as many people do in the northern hemisphere on this occasion?

I'm in Lerwick ( Shetland Islands ) atm and we're going to play a few holes of golf this evening, teeing off at midnight.

When Palin went to Bulgaria to see the White Brotherhood wasn't their circle (paneurhythmic) dance done on the summer solstice?

Lorotto: you mean that bit where he had the oak tree crown on his head? Yes, I believe it was. Suzulu: I'm with you. I've never hear of that either, I've certainly never done it.

Terry S, you're right, the Latvian festival was the summer solstice celebration! The mountains in Rila Bulgaria was not, I was thinking of the people dressed in white dancing in circles.
