I finally got out of bed after having my third flu in six months…October, April, June…plus having shingles in May. One could make the argument that I am doing something wrong in regards to my health. I believe it is my new calorie restricted diet. Maybe not the best idea if you want to avoid getting ill! But what can I do? Lost Symphony of the Vorovskoy Mir added 20 pounds to my 5’2 frame. The book I’m writing now…Nordic Nights….I have lost 15 pounds since I began writing. I am now only 5-7 pounds above my doctor approved weight loss goal. I have no answers on weight loss and health. But enough about me, and on to Sankthans! It is a Danish celebration of the summer solstice. It was a pagan ritual that was then tweaked a bit to celebrate the feast of John the Baptist which is celebrated exactly 6 months after the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s a lovely holiday where families enjoy a picnic on the grass, listen to a speech, sing songs all while a roaring bonfire is lit.
