UK - Brighton - Winter Solstice celebration Burning the Clocks
Brighton, UK. Friday 21st December 2012. The big burn. All of the lanterns are set on fire. Burning the Clocks has been a Brighton tradition for almost two decades. This event takes place on the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. A 2,000-strong parade winds its way through the streets and people pass their handmade paper and willow lanterns – filled symbolically with their hopes and dreams – into a blazing bonfire to "burn the clocks" and welcome in the new longer day.
