St John's Eve

Sometimes tradition can be so helpful.

The Beaker Fertility Folk have all rushed out into the spinney to celebrate their traditional St John's Eve rituals.

The Beaker People who Recreate Unlikely old Traditions are just heading off to Church Porch, to wake and see who will die this year in the parish.

All either terrifyingly pagan or scarily close to necromancy.

Still, it's lovely and quiet in the Community this evening.

Mustn't grumble.


  1. I can thoroughly recommend Geoffrey Grigson's The Englishman's Flora on the topic of St John's Wort and by extension, St John's Eve and the folklore attached thereto.

    Come to think of it, I can thoroughly recommend The Englishman's Flora in general.

  2. Must have been a long night in 1349.
