Happy Solstice

Happy Solstice Day, to all you New Age crystal buyers and neo-pagan Druid types gathered at Stonehenge today.

Thousands of New Agers and neo-pagans danced and whooped in delight as a bright early morning sun rose above the ancient stone circle Stonehenge, marking the summer solstice.

About 20,000 people crowded the prehistoric site on Salisbury Plain, southern England, to see the sunrise at 4:52 A.M. (1152EST), after an annual all-night party.

The event typically draws thousands of alternative-minded revelers to the monument, as they wait for dawn at the Heel Stone, a pockmarked pillar just outside the circle proper, which aligns with the rising sun.

Today, hilariously ended cloudy.

Police said they had made 34 arrests, the majority for drug possession, and reported no serious problems.
