Краткий осмотр (реферат): I would like to talk about Midsummer Celebration in Western and Northern European countries. As is well known, St. John’s day, June 24, is traditionally celebrated as the birthday of St. John who was a prophet known as John the Baptist. He is regarded as a predecessor of Jesus Christ. Before Christianity people celebrated Midsummer among Celts, Germanic people and Slavs. As Christianity spread among them, they made this celebration into the feast of John the Baptist as his birthday was believed to be six months earlier than Jesus’s. This is how John the Baptist and Midsummer have been merged.
