What is the Danish Midsummer's Eve?
Midsummer’s Eve is a feast day for St John the Baptist who was born six months before the birth of Christ. He was born on the 24th for June, but the celebration takes place the evening before – on Midsummer's Eve – just like Christmas is celebrated by the Danes, and by many others, on the eve before Christmas Day. The bonfire is lit to scare off witches and evil spirits.
