every year our community celebrates the Spring Equinox with a bonfire on the beach. we save our Christmas trees and burn them to usher in the new season.

at 7:00 we gather for a bit of drumming and then proceed to the beach, dragging our trees in a strange procession of children, dogs, and people drumming and playing instruments.
choose a tree and throw it on the fire
until it's blazing
