In Finland we have this ...
yes, vähäluminen juhannus ... hmmm ...
how to explain this.
low-snow-midsummer ... ?
( if in luck )
it goes on ...
and on ...
and on ...

This is a legendary Date of Rebirth, and somewhat risky to wander around.
I was there on an expedition ( went outside, but not over 30 minutes ! ).
As you can see, " they " are there by the lake still worshipping Midsummer Sun,
while I am standing in snow up to my knees secretly watching their ceremonies
( well, no not really, let's say up to my ankles ) ( okay, it was only 5 cm )
( ... but it was the first snow ! )
So here is one of the several ritualistic high ceremonial platforms
that can still be found in Finnish highland woods here and there, quite often, actually.
This is somehow related with a mysterious
ancient Nychthemeron Clan of Worshippers.
I have one right outside the door ( well not Clan, the platform ! ).
Most intriguing, I must say.
I did not approach this platform yet, I kept a respectful distance,
as footprints can be seen in the snow and traced back to where I came from,
but I am guessing I just might take a little closer look sometime in the future,
if I find sponsors.
And my warm gloves.
