It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

The solstices and the equinoxes are REAL.  And throughout history, people who lived far away from the equator, found reason to mark the approximate dates of these events. 

I think holidays and celebrations and traditions are wonderful, and are among the purposes that religions serve.  No reason not to embrace the solstice.
