Lite the Bonfire
At midnight in Galicia, Spain, everyone lights their bonfire to welcome the summer and celebrate St. John's Eve. The fires are a common theme throughout Europe and thought to rid a person or place of evil spirits and jumping over them brings good luck. Drink Queimada while chanting the spell that goes with it. Dance, share food, enjoy the fireworks. Women dip gathered herbs in sacred water and hang them over the doorway.
