Circle of druids perform pagan ceremony for the spring equinox

Neo-pagans in London celebrated the spring equinox today (March 20) by forming a circle of druids, seeking spiritual blessings at this astrologically significant time of year.

Video of the event shows a circle of white-clad devotees gather around a central figure who blows a horn to mark the arrival of the equinox.
