Today, 24 June, is observed the Feast of St John the Baptist, because the Gospel tells us he was born 6 months before Jesus.  His feast is celebrated at the summer solstice after which the days decrease just as John said he must decrease in order that the Christ my increase.  Jesus is born at the darkest time to bring light to the world.
