Sankt Hans: Midsummer Eve

Yesterday was the Danish midsummer eve celebration called Sankt Hans Aften which is marked with a ritual burning of a witch effigy atop a bonfire to drive evil spirits away and a remembrance of the grim witchburning practices from many centuries ago. These are photos taken in our little town Hjerm.
