The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and falls on June 21st. On this day the sun is at its highest point in the sky. There is a summer solstice celebration at Stonehenge, the ancient stone circle on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire. Other people celebrate in groups in various open spaces or gardens. Often bonfires are lit to 'strengthen' the sun's light and people eat barbeques or picnics. These biscuits are called Bonfire Biscuits because they are great for eating around bonfires.
