Happens in about one hour so fill your hearts with light and cups full of alcohol if you're in the Northern hemisphere, for we are peaking.

Well no it's not important really, just tradition.

And celebrating the solstices especially far north makes much sense to me cheers.gif

A bit of reality|:

A solstice is an event occurring when the Sun appears to reach its most northerly or southerly excursion relative to the celestial equator on the celestial sphere. Two solstices occur annually, around June 21 and December 21. The seasons of the year are determined by reference to both the solstices and the equinoxes.

I can see why you guys are rejoicing.
