Today is the first day of the summer. That means more probability of having sunny days and what is more important: holidays! In the northern hemisphere today is the longest day of the year and this day has been celebrated since the ancient times. It is the summer solstice.
The pagans celebrated this day with fire, to symbolize the power of the sun. The tradition was to dance and jump around the fire to purify souls. Nowadays, there are still celebrations of these days, normally Christianized as Saint John celebration on the night of the 23rd of June. We will talk about that tomorrow.
Today we just want to wish you a very happy summer and we hope you enjoy it in the best hotels!
