Re: The bonfire in the night before the wedding

Nice photograph Ivan.

Thanks for commenting.

Is there something significant about the bonfire that
relates to a wedding? Apart from the 'burning desire' bit.

This wedding (of my wife's former colleague) happened to be around Midsummer Night, when they make the night bonfire anyway. The Midsummer Night (my name day by the way bonfire was used to jump over it. If you jump over the fire together with a partner, it is a nice common experience to begin or to strengthen a relationship.  If you jump alone, it is worth taking a look at which point of the circle you chose to land: this might reveal your interest for the person standing there...

Jumping three times over the fire enhances the purifying effect ascribed to the fire.
