Postcard of my photos of Brighton's Burning the Clocks parade 2012

Brighton's Burning the Clocks lantern parade and night festival celebrates the passing of the old time and the restarting of the clock after the winter solstice. The parade of lanterns and clock symbols is headed by the Lady of Light. The parade passes through the streets and lanes of Brighton, ending on the beach where the symbols of the old time are purified by fire and the water from the sea. It's a peculiarly secular event, appropriate for the city which the recent census identified as having the least believers in God in the UK.
