Yeah, I know I'm Malaysian, but today (and tomorrow) will be about one of my favorite festivals:

"Jani" (Yah-nyee) is a Latvian festival occuring around June 23-24, where the Latvians go to the countryside to dance around bonfires, eat lots of meat and cheese, and drink loads of beer.

 

There's also lots of singing during this festival. Latvians love singing.

 

Oh, and don't that men with the name "John" will have a wear a huge wreath on their heads!

 

So, for all of you non-Latvians (including Americans), how do you celebrate Midsummer/Summer Sun Festival?

There are no summer celebrations where I live that I'm aware of. There certainly aren't any formal holidays, anyway.

 

That's fine by me, as I don't see summer as anything worth celebrating about... Why would I want to be outside in the heat? lol

I celebrate the summer sun festival by staying in a air conditioned house and pretending summer doesn't exist because i dislike the summer and the heat. :)
