3 Incredibly Cool Things for You to Do This Summer Solstice 2017
Whilst most of us are aware that Wednesday 21st June marks mid- summer 2017, many of us won’t have made any plans to celebrate in a special way, so why not do it differently this year and plan some incredibly cool things to do this summer solstice? Here are 3 different suggestions that are guaranteed to have something to please everyone and give you a solstice experience you’ll never forget...
Gather: Greet the Sun at Dawn
Thousands of people gather at key landmarks and ancient sites throughout the UK and Ireland as dawn breaks to celebrate the longest day of the year. High profile sites such as Stone Henge and lesser well known areas such as Beaghmore Stone Circles in Co. Tyrone will attract travelers wishing to capture the magic of such a spectacle by tracing the footsteps of out ancient ancestors.
Relax: Mid-Summer Mindfulness
Many people see the Solstice as an important date in their spiritual calendar but, regardless of your beliefs, there is no denying it provides us with a wonderful opportunity to get outside and become more aware of the beauty of nature and quietly reflect on the mystery of our solar system. Arrange a hike in the hills, a night time walk at the beach, a picnic in the park or even check your local area for specified yoga or meditation gatherings to mark the occasion.
Celebrate: Attend a Festival
Surely there’s no better time to kick off the festival season than on Mid Summer’s Night? By heading further North, where the sun will barely set, you can visit The Secret Solstice Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland, which attracts huge headline acts and well known musical performers each year. If you prefer to remain closer to home check out your local festival calendar or dance the night away with friends under the bright sky in the comfort of your own garden!
