Jónsmessa 

Icelandic #Folklore

Jónsmessa, also known as Midsummer Night, is an Icelandic holiday celebrated on June 24.
It is the longest day of the year and is entrenched with magic and mystery.
In Icelandic folklore, cows may begin to speak throughout the night caused by supernatural powers.

Seals magickly shape-shift into people.

Icelandic folklore dictates if one sits at a crossroads where all four roads lead to different churches, all night, elves will attempt to seduce you with gifts and food.
Some people stay healthy it is called “earthing” by rolling naked in the grass.
