The night of 23 June is the shortest one of the year and they say that it is also the most magic. It’s San Juan’s night, a celebration in which we can find together rituals with fire, powder and music. All the coast is full during this night of campfires and, the most important, of good wishes. In this post we are talking you about everything you need to learn to enjoy the San Juan’s night in Jávea and all its rituals.
San Juan’s night in Jávea
This celebration is much more special when happening in Jávea, with the arrival of the summer solstice. This great city the Costa Blanca celebrates the Nit dels Fosc, a celebration declared with the title of Touristic Interest by the Generalitat of Valencia.
In contrast to the rest of the coastal villages, during the night of San Juan, the celebration takes part in the historic center. The night starts with the “Cremà dels Focs” and there are a lot of campfires situated in various places in the ancient castle. The tradition says that you have to visit every campfire and jump above them, carrying a garland of honeysuckles on the head, like a crown. When arriving to the last one, so the greatest one and made of old recipients, the crown gets thrown in the fire and a wish is requested at this moment.
The magic of the fire continues with a spectacular “Correfocs”, which goes through the traces of the built-in wall city.
San Juan’s night rituals
This magic night is celebrated also in other cities of the Costa Blanca, like Dénia, Benissa, Altea and Cape. Its beaches are getting full from people, friends and families who wait around of a campfire until it’s midnight so as to make their wishes.
Precisely, the most magic moment of the night begins at midnight. The rituals to seiaze the good vibes are many, such as jumping the campfires between seven and nine times, burn a list with the negative things that you want to throw out from your life, swimming in the sea and at the same time, take a bath to reassure your good health during the whole year.
