Winter Solstice

by duncanr

the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere this year happens tomorrow morning, 22nd December

as usual, we can expect, here in the UK, to see a crowd gathering at Stonehenge to mark the occasion – click here for more info

in Latvia, meanwhile, they celebrate the winter solstice somewhat differently . . .

Pop goes the . . .

Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to watch a movie and some jerk in the audience is making too much noise for you to hear the dialogue on screen ? I know I do – almost as much as I hate the fat woman in the big hat that always sits in front of me in the movie theatre !!!

You might want to think twice about complaining though – particularly if you live, or are holidaying, in Latvia. A movie-goer there was shot dead after complaining about the noise another member of the audience was making eating popcorn during the film

[the shooter was considerate enough to wait until the film ended before killing the complainer]
