Summer Solstice - Fairbanks, Alaska

Midsummer's Eve 
     On June 21, the summer solstice, also known as the Feast of St. John, is a festive celebration of the beginning of the sun's descent into Winter. Popular activities during this event are marking field boundaries with torches, rolling flaming wooden wheels, lighting bonfires at the top of hills and mountains, jumping over special fires known as St. John's fires, burning animal bones on the northern side of the churches to drive away spirits, 
and wrestling matches. The villagers also ring bells, sprinkle holy water, 
and wear dragon masks. 

The Summer Solstice, or Feill-Sheathain
is a traditional holiday in many cultures. Before civilization, it was the time
of the great gathering of all the tribes. Now, we gather once again.

Midyear ( June 21st ) 
This is the longest day and the shortest night of the year. 
Now Suna begins its long decline, sliding into the darkness
which will culminate six months from now at Yule.
