Sankthans

Tonight is Sankthansaften, Midsummer’s Eve. Not something that we ever really paid much attention to when I was growing up in Northumberland, but here in Norway it is a big event with bonfires.

I understand that Scotland and particularly the border regions used to have festivities to celebrate Midsummer. I wonder what my ancestors used to get up to out in the fields on the long light summer nights.
