Can someone remind me what I am supposed to do for summer solstice. I tried celebrating it this evening with a trip up the road to the Botanics which was open late for the occasion. Striking a pose in front of the glass-houses was all very well for 10 minutes but then the midges started to bite. It also started to rain. Instead of feeling full of the joys, I felt all bitten and wet, and I’m sure that is not what was supposed to happen.

What am I supposed to do today? Sacrificing virgins and rolling in the morning dew seem like possibilities, though there might be practical problems there too. I’ve a feeling that those were for May Day anyway.

Your suggestions please.
