June 23rd marks the eve of the birth of St John the Baptist. This feast day is significant to many in our Hispanic community who celebrate Noche de San Juan. Noche de San Juan is an occasion that is usually celebrated two days prior to the summer solstice. You would find many gathered at the beach jubilating with food, music, bonfires, and festivities. At the beach when the clock strikes 12 midnight, it is a tradition to plunge into the water to get rid of negativity. Some plunge backwards into the water three times and others take 7 or 12 dives. What a way to refresh and renew! How will you be celebrating?
