- Midsummer fun
- June 19th, 2009
Last weekend was a frenetic, wonderful happening, if i can use such a sixties word, with a couple of hundred druidsfrom OBOD (the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) celebrating midsummer in Glastonbury.
The three morning Grove meetings led into a magical ceremony on the Tor, transporting us to Avalon with all its wonders, before returning for the by now legendary feast and eisteddfod.
Druids really know how to party! Dancing went way into the night, and a druid friend's spoof article - a 'druid fashion parade' - really came to life. Glamorous and individualistic was the order of the night, and lights, music and good fellowship made it an enchanted evening.
At about 4am the hardy amongst us went off to Stonehenge for a dawn ceremony: I was not among them, though I'll try to kid the mre serious that I was there on the astral......
All in all, a brilliant weekend. Yep, we know it wasn't the Solstice; this was celebration, and now we're all back in our home Groves to mark the highpoint of the Solar year; Alban Hefin.
