Solstices and other Holidays

Yesterday was the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. What are these people doing? What are those stone structures for?

How do the people in your world mark the passing of seasons? Do you have any winter observances?

Is it wrong that I spent the winter solstice in a darkened movie theater with my hubby?

Olivia Harper said...

Not at all.

And, hey, at least the world didn't end!

It looks to me like a tournament field, where knights would ride horses through the posts and falcons perch on the tops.

When I was a child in England I often passed Stonehenge. It was not fenced in then, just standing there not far from the road.
It was odd and disappointing to see it "touristy" when I went back as an adult.

To help U.S. find our Way...

"This finite existence is only a test, son," God Almighty sed to me in my coma. "Beyond thy earthly tempest is where you'll find corpulent eloquence" (paraphrased). Lemme tella youse without d'New Joisey accent...

I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET any moe curly, 3stooges, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic girl passed-away at 17.

Find-out where we went on our journey far, far away like the symbiotically, synonyMOUSEs which creep across thy brain bringing U.S. together done in FOUR, sardonic satires.

"Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3

Here's also what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
See you Upstairs...
I won't be joining'm in the nasty Abyss where Isis prowls
