Winter Solstice 2008 at Stonehenge, Wiltshire saw a record number of celebrants turn up for the dawn ceremony in the stones.
The man with the clicker said there were 1944 participants, and with nearly two thousand people there it has to be one of the best attended celebrations for a long time. Indeed in the twenty years that the glastonbury order of druids have attended we have not seen so many. Peolple were in very good spirits generally and it seems that the credit crunch is turning people away from materialism to spirituality in large numbers.
The ceremony was well recieved by the public who all joined in to become the Stonehenge Choir working for peace in the world and relief for the children of the world suffering from the effects of war, famine, and flood.
This picture shows the Archdruid of Stonehenge, Rollo Maughfling, Green pagan Man, and Archaeologist Julian Richards sharing a joke after the ceremony and generally enjoying the marvellous sensation that the Stonehenge landscape generates.
