What wonderful ways to celebrate the solstice! It's a bit like Juhannus (St. John's Day in Finland). Though I've only experienced it a few times in Scandinavia, I do miss having some kind of celebration here in Canada. In my childhood, the tiny Finnish community in Manitoba would celebrate at someone's cottage or a beach. An interesting mix of secular, rooted in paganism, mixed with a saint's day. And I love your description of the Catholic service, it reminds me of many years ago attending a Christmas Eve service with Catholic friends that we were visiting. Beauty in traditions! Bonne Fête to you and J!

Sounds lovely. & a terrific picture!
