Solstice and Equinox - Why Stonehenge was built. Did you know the sun draws a figure "8" every year , thats why 8 is an infinity symbol. Or how to calculate the circumference of the earth with just a shadow?
The Ogham Grove is formed of the twenty traditional ogham trees placed in their correct sequence. Yew is in the north for Winter Solstice; Ash is in the east for Spring Equinox; Apple in the south for Summer Solstice; and Elder in the west for the Autumn Equinox.
The Celtic celebration of the winter solstice was called the Alban Arthuan, one of four celebrations that marked the solstice and equinox positions of the sun. Alban Arthuan was a festival of peace and a celebration of waxing solar light. Many honored the forthcoming Sun child by burning an oaken Yule log, and honored the Goddess in her many Mother aspects. The Father God was honored in various forms: as Santa Claus, the Old Sky God, Father Time, and the Holly King.
