Summer Solstice Lanterns Fill Sky in Poland

Imagine this... floating candle lit lanterns...thousands of them quietly floating through the sky like gigantic fire flies or luminescent jellyfish under the sea. 11,000 lanterns were released at twilight on the longest day of the year in Poznan,Poland.  What a beautiful sight as people gather and create this moment together in celebration of summer solstice. This video fills my heart as I am about to depart on my quest to Poland on July 2nd.  Being in a country that creates moments of beauty like this will inspire me in ways I haven't even imagined yet, I'm sure.

This video came to me after just having a conversation earlier last evening about fireworks and the 4th of July.  Although I love watching fireworks, my friends were saying how toxic they are to the environment and that it is time to find another magical alternative.  I think the people of Poznan, Poland have found it! Take a moment to watch this beautiful moment on video...
