The solstices and equinoxes marked the *middle* of the seasons back then, not the beginnings as we're used to them now.

Astronomically, they mark the middle. Seasonally, the weather tends to lag behind, so people think of it as the beginning.

The idea of savoring the now is still quite appropriate.

I think that is very much in the spirit of the holiday, but I'm with Jhereg. The thing I'm most grateful for this time of year is freon.
