Pagans and Druids gathered at Stonehenge

Living Their Faith

  • I have no problem with Druids and Pagans peacefully celebrating their faith and seeking the truth of life. 
  • This is a vast improvement over the brutal intolerance of Islam or years back when Catholics and Protestants murdered and tortured each other in the name of Jesus.

(UK Express)  -  Thousands of people, including pagans and druids dressed in traditional clothing, gathered at Stonehenge to celebrate the shortest day of the year.

Spectators gazed up at the sky to witness the beginning of the winter solstice, the point at which the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun.
Some people offered prayers to gods, while others sounded trumpets, drums and other musical instruments.
Visitors were seen rejoicing and embracing each other and kissing the stones, as the sun rose over Stonehenge at 8.13am.
Kate Davies from English Heritage, which looks after the prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, said: "We were delighted to welcome approximately 5,000 people to Stonehenge to celebrate winter solstice this morning.
"It was a very enjoyable and peaceful celebration and the ancient stone circle was filled with the sound of drumming and chanting."
Although the entire day is typically considered to be the solstice, the precise moment it occurs is when the sun is directly over the line marking the latitude stretching across the southern hemisphere - the Tropic of Capricorn.
