Finland Gay Midsummer holidaysRainbow Midsummer Celebration 2020! For Midsummer 2020 we have reserved the entire Kalevala hotel in Finland's Wild Taiga for you to spend a holiday you will certainly remember! In celtic shamanic times the term Alban Hefin was used for the summer solstice. It was a 12 day long celebration during a warm summer. The Goddes of Earth was pregnant, everything on Earth was glooming and growing. It was the best time of the year considering how hard life was back then. At that time of the year you could smell and taste the nature and enjoy it's products as much as you can.

Midsummer Magic and Traditions

There was everything in profuse amounts - also joy and love. It was a time of happiness and gratefullness. Women brewed herb beer which has aphrodisiac (ecstatic, sexual potency lifting) effect. Everyone danced naked around the bonfire.

Chatolic church didn't approve this heathen celebration and forbidded it. Forbiddance was ignored and celebrations continued in secret. Church decided to change the name and meaning of the celebrations and today we know the day as St. John's Day .
