    Every year I'm tempted, and every year I forget and arrange something else at the wrong end of the country

    I lived next to it for 5 years. Never saw the fun in getting up at 3am to see the sunrise. Mind you, new theories suggest that the actual event was at sunset!

    Sunset on the winter solstice when they were over the hump and every day would be a tad longer.

    Damn you, I have been trying to avoid all references to the longest day, I always find it so depressing.
