We do a big Soup and Solstice party for friends and neighbors on solstice. No gifts, just an open house with soup, bread and warmth. We may sing silly songs about the sun and sunshine. I have sun cookies for the kids to decorate. If its not raining too hard, I may have a bonfire out back.
That sounds really NICE! How many friends and neighbors usually attend?
That's the beauty of it.. it changes. Last year I had 50 plus.. this year closer to thirty tonight. I'm starting up the crockpots now. I can't wait. If the rain hold off I have a bonfire out back, too.
