Druids were an ancient Celtic people who settled in Western Europe. They had a deep reverance for nature and their major holidays took place around the changing of seasons. Many of these exist today, albeit in a different form (Groundhog's Day, Easter, and Halloween.)

Their history was passed down by word of mouth so very little written text remains. If anything their history is told by other peoples who observed them. The most notable history written by Ceasar in his book Commentarii de Bello Gallico.

After the Roman conquest, the Druids were all but destroyed. Stonehenge is often associated with Druidic practices but evidence suggests that the mysterious rock formation was in existance long before the Druids even found their way to Britannia.

But could Druidism be en vogue yet again?

If this dress worn by Lindsay Lohan is any indication, then the answer is a resounding yes! I for one welcome Druish fashion into modern times, especially if it means getting a shot at those delicious 20 year-old mammaries.
I have a feeling that if Druids were this hot, I would have gone to a Druid Boarding school instead of getting my knuckles rapped by Sister Mary McClanahan. The only thing better would be if Druids were way into jumping up and down spontaneously. You know what I'm saying, right? Jiggla-jiggla-jiggla!

Where is everybody? I thought I'd do Celebrity Science Monday, Afe would do Music Tuesdays, Koala comes in with Krazy Links Wednesday and then Goo would finish up the week with Great Moments in Art Thursdays. Or something. And Friday is the day we all beg God for forgiveness.
