How to get married?
• On a Midsummer night pick the nine different flowers and put the bouquet under your pillow. Man, you are dreaming of, will be your future husband
• On a Midsummer night go to the sauna and whisk the nice boys. A Sticking birch leaf shows your future husband
• Wash yourself with Midsummer morning dew, it makes you beautiful
• If you can find a fern’s blossom on a Midsummer night, you will be rich and become able to understand animal languages.

So, if you are rich and beautiful and able to speak with everyone, you are will definitely get married 🙂

Jaaniõhtu (Midsummer Eve – 23 June) and Jaanipäev (Midsummer Day, St John’s Day – 24 June) are the most important holidays in the Estonian calendar.

Jaanipäev is summer solstice and we say ” sun do not go down”.
In Estonian fairy tales and literature, there is a tale of two lovers, Koit (dawn) and Hämarik (dusk). These two lovers see each other only once a year and exchange the briefest of kisses on the shortest night of the year. Earth-bound lovers go into the forest looking for the “flower of the fern” which is said to bloom only on that night.
