Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, June 24

One of the funnest parts of being in a community is celebrating with friends and family. This week for Watery Wednesday we take a look at festivals, gatherings, and all the other ways communities come together to celebrate something. Read about what it's like to celebrate the Solstice at Stonehenge, how to find a sober space at Pagan festivals, and the many ways that Pagans are coming together on Tumblr. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Ever been to Stonehenge during the Summer Solstice? If not then this article from The Guardian might interest you; it details how modern celebrations of midsummer at the ancient site have changed over the years and how it's grown into a thriving tourist industry.

Paganicon 2016 is on it's way! Check out the announcement here, along with a description of its new theme and information about a T-shirt design contest the event's organizers are putting on.

It's been more than a month since the Nepal earthquake but that doesn't mean that the recovery is over. The Huffington Post takes a look at the ongoing efforts to help the children of Nepal by humanitarian and Buddhist organizations.

Celebrating at a festival is one thing. But maybe you're not really up for as much revelry as everyone else? At The Wild Hunt, Terrence Ward discusses how Pagan festivals serve and address the needs of sober Pagans and how to find them if you're a teetotaler.

The internet is often a wonderful way to connect to other people. After all, we're using it right now. The development of online communities has in many ways has allowed people to find communities that fit them best, blending a variety of interests into a seamless whole.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
