Midsummer's Eve was a celebration of the summer solstice on June 24th. It was also the celebration of John the Baptist's birthday.


Feasting and merrymaking were common during the midsummer festival. As the longest days of the year, the celebration could last long into the night.


Golden flowers like the Calendula and St. John's Wort were believed to have healing powers when picked at midsummer. Bonfires were lit to protect against the free-roaming spirits which were believed to emerge when the sun turned south.
