The feast of Saint John Riganas and summer solstice

Spending summer holidays as a kid in a rural town of the Greek countryside in the 80’s, proved to be beneficial in offering rich cultural experiences I would never have been exposed to otherwise. Life and social conditions have changed in Greece since and a lot of customs and traditions have disappeared. I didn’t realize it back then, but those days offered an important glimpse into the Mediterranean culture and lifestyle.
