Wight Druids gather at the Longstone for Alban Arthan (Winter Solstice) on 22nd December 2011 (this was an impromptu gathering on the day of the Solstice with the full gathering taking place on the 24th).
Hail all those that came before us
Hail the Mabon and all those who follow us.
All see the turning of the wheel,
The endless cycle that connects us all.
With Reverence and Joy we welcome the Mabon, the returning light.
