Midwinter Celebrations an ongoing Legacy!

Greetings form the Antarctic Club of South Africa


Midwinter Day, or Midwinter, is an annual celebration held across Antarctica on the day of the southern winter solstice (June 20 or 21). It is the continent’s primary cultural holiday and, along with Antarctica Day, is one of two principal Antarctic holidays.

See below the menu of the First midwinter that was attended by South Africans in Halley Bay in 1959.
