Nit de Sant Joan, Ibiza Island

June 24th is the Patron Saint’s day of John the Baptist or Sant Joan. A long tradition that is held dear all across Spain. The date is celebrated with music, singing, dancing and bonfires in the streets and on the beaches on the eve of Saint John, the night of the 23rd.

As tradition dictates, "els nou foguerons" (the nine bonfires) are lit and the most daring people jump each fire to leave behind the old and welcome the new one.

Traditionally, you should throw into the fire something old that represents something you no longer want in your life or a piece of paper where you are meant to write those things you want to change. While some jump, others tasted "bunyols" and "vi pages" (local wine).
