St. John's Day

On Friday 23rd June, residents and co-workers from Camphill Milton Keynes celebrated St. John's Day on the grass area.
This is the period of time centred upon the summer solstice.
In the Gospel of Luke, certain verses imply that John the Baptist was born six months earlier than Jesus. And since it has become tradition that Jesus was born on 25 December (Christmas), Midsummer day, being six months before was taken to be the feast day of St. John the Baptist.
