Saint John
The Día de San Juan on 24 June fuses Christian tradition with ancient summer solstice celebrations. In many areas, particularly near the sea, it is customary to light large bonfires on open ground on the night of 23 June and to burn an effigy, usually made of pieces of wood and rags, at the stake. These hogueras de San Juan, which are often accompanied by fireworks and music, draw crowds of people wanting to dance or simply to enjoy the summer evening, until the fire dies out in the small hours. Some legends credit this night with magical qualities and talk of ghostly apparitions.
