€5 dedicated to JONINÈS (RASOS) from the series “Traditional lituanian celebrations” 2018

La nuit du 23 juin est la nuit la plus courte de l’année. On croit que cette nuit est magique, que la sorcellerie et les sorts se réalisent, et que les herbes récoltées dans les prairies acquièrent des pouvoirs de guérison spéciaux. Depuis les temps anciens, c’était une nuit d’été, appelée localement fête de Rasos, quand les Lituaniens chantaient, dansaient et célébraient jusqu’à l’aube.

Ce n’est que lorsque le christianisme est venu en Lituanie que cette fête c’est appelé (St. John’s) et traduit par Joninės. Cependant, bien que le nom ait changé, les anciennes traditions du festival, les sorts et le plaisir restent les mêmes.
