Summer Solstice at the Janis Hill of Turaida Museum Reserve on June 21, 2014


SUMMER SOLSTICE

AT THE JANIS HILL OF TURAIDA MUSEUM RESERVE  /  JUNE 21 / 2014

POWER OF COUPLE – SUPER POWER OF LIGHT

Summer solstice or Jāņi is the celebration of the longest day and shortest night of the year. Jāņi are a somewhat mystic event, as, according to ancient traditions, you have to search for the Legendary fern blossom, wash your face in the grass`s morning dew, and gather herbal plants, which are said to have a special power midsummer. Summer Solstice celebrations date back centuries, when Europeans actively practiced the cult of the Sun. Bonfires and other rituals are not only part of annual traditional celebrations, but also manifest the unity of Cosmic and Earth order.*
