Originally a pagan holiday, Midsummer’s Eve was a festival of the Summer Solstice in ancient times. Bonfires were lit to protect against evil spirits which were believed to roam freely when the sun was turning southwards again. Witches were also thought to be on their way to meetings with other mystical beings.
