Pagans And Druids At Stonehenge For Solstice from The Herald

22 Dec

Hundreds of druids, pagans and tourists braved the gloomy weather to gather at Stonehenge yesterday morning for winter solstice.

A crowd of 1900 people, some dressed in cloaks and robes, gathered to see sunrise at the prehistoric site of the mysical stones in Wiltshire.

Winter solstice is a pagan celebration on the shortest day of the year. More than 20,000 people usually attend the annual summer solstice celebration at the site in June on the longest day of the year.
