Stonehenge Vernal Equinox Celebrations: 20th March
Each year on the Spring Equinox Druids and Pagans gather at Stonehenge early in the morning to mark the Spring Equinox and to see the sunrise above the stones.
It's an ad hoc celebration that brings together England's New Age Tribes (neo-druids, neo-pagans, Wiccans) with ordinary families, tourists, travelers - usually a few 100 people!
For many the impulse to arrive at Stonehenge in time for the Solstice and Equinox is a little like all those people drawn to the strange rock in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It's akin to a spiritual experience. Anyone who has witnessed the crowd become silent as the sky begins to brighten can attest to that. The Spring Equinox is the least visited of all celebrations at Stonehenge
Stonehenge Autumn Equinox Celebrations: 23rd September
The autumnal equinox falls on September 23rd, marking the official first day of Autumn as well as the pagan holiday, Mabon.
A time for Pagans to reflect on the past season, the Autumn Equinox otherwise known as Mabon or Harvest Home is celebrated when day and night is of equal duration before descending into increasing darkness. What better place to celebrate this time of year than visiting the monument of Stonehenge.
Mabon is a harvest festival, the second of three, that encourages pagans to "reap what they sow," both literally and figuratively. It is the time when night and day stand equal in duration; thus is it a time to express gratitude, complete projects and honour a moment of balance.
Some pagans mark the holiday by enjoying rich feasts with seasonal foods like apples, pomegranates and root vegetables. Many also observe rituals honoring the goddess' transition from mother to crone.
