Happy midsummer eve…

It’s midsummer eve bonfire night in my neighbourhood. Every year we have a bonfire around June 23.

We have a a big bonfire and a band.

This time of year the days are just about the longest we have, and since the bonfire really is for the kids they tend to light the fire around 7 pm even though it’s not dark yet (don’t’ really get dark until after midnight).

It’s fun, listening to the kids having fun, laughter, screams, kids running around and a whole lot of sound from the music they are playing 😉

Just wanted to share some pictures of the bonfire this year!

HAPPY MIDSUMMER EVE, everyone 🙂

    Bonfires are such a nice old tradition for midsummer. Unfortunately,around here nobody knows the tradition. I only see bonfires in the fall around October. ;( Thanks for sharing!

    We all love a fire, especially a big one. Something nice and primitive about a fire. Never forget that scene of Kevin Costner dancing around that fire in “Dances With Wolves.” 🙂

      Great reminder if the film, you are right about the fire. It’s easy to get “lost” in the fire and feel the body relax and go back to “the centre” 🙂

    I was like – hey, midsummer was LAST week, until I realized that it might differ between our countries 😉 we have bonfires the last day of April, such a nice way to start spring 🙂
