23 and 24 June are two very special days in the Bondora calendar. Midsummers’s Day (jaanipäev) on June 24 and jaanilaupäev before it are the most important holidays on the Estonian calendar.
It’s just after the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. In Estonia, it also coincides with the famous white nights – the nights have a constant light glow, and there are almost 19 hours of daylight on Jaanipäev!
To celebrate, we go to summer cottages, visit with family and friends, light bonfires, wear flower crowns, and sing and dance the ‘night’ away until the dawn of June 24.
It’s the perfect chance to enjoy life, go to the countryside, make new memories with friends, grill outside, and enjoy the warmth of summer.
Head jaanipäeva from all the superheroes at Bondora!
