The Longest Day of the Year
This morning in Wiltshire, England, hundreds of people went to stonehenge to watch the sunrise and welcome the beginning of summer. During this event, the sun shines on one famous stone - the Hell stone. For the Druids this is a very important moment of the year.
Today, June 21st, is also National Aboriginal Day. It's a day of celebration for the cultures of Inuit and Metis peoples.
So, in honor of this day, why not take a Druid or an Inuit to lunch.
Me, I'm finally going to see Batman Begins tonight.
It's not necessarily a way to celebrate the day, but what better way to take advantage of the extra daylight, then by sitting in a darkened theatre.
