Saint Jonas' Festival 2017

June 24, 2017 in Lithuania

Saint Jonas' Festival takes place on June 24, 2017. Saint Jonas' Festival is a midsummer folk festival celebrated all around Lithuania. While midsummer day is celebrated throughout Europe, many Lithuanians have a particularly lively agenda on this day. The traditions include singing songs and dancing until the sun sets, telling tales, searching to find the magic fern blossom at midnight, jumping over bonfires, greeting the rising midsummer sun and washing the face with a morning dew, young girls float flower wreaths on the water of river or lake. These are customs brought from pagan culture and beliefs. The latter Christian tradition is based on the reverence of Saint John the Baptist. Lithuanians with the names Jonas, Jonė, Janina receive many greetings from their family, relatives and friends. (With material form: Wikipedia)
