Hi,

Tonight, between 23thJune-24th June, is a magic one: it is the “NOCHE DE SAN JUAN”.
People will lit a lot of bonfires, burning all not neccessary for living, particularly, bad feelings I hope. Smile
At the crack of dawn, go to the spring or to the river and drink water: this is LA FLOR DEL AGUA, the water blessed by the magic night.
Very Happy
I love Noche de San Juan, I really believe it is magic!.

Marta.

Yesterday in Casteldefels (Cataluña) 12 youngs were killed and 13 were seriously injured by a train when they tried to cross the railway track.

They were anxious to go to the beach to celebrate the Noche de San Juan and, instead of using the allowed passing, they jumped into the railway.....
Ages between 16-26 years. Sad Sad

Very sad night.... Sad

I'm sorry to hear that news. What a contrast between the messages.
