Estonian culture

Hello again!
As it was St John's day in Estonia today we are going to introduce you to some of the quirky culture of Estonia.
On the 22nd of June Estonian people celebrate St John's eve which is like their midsummer celebration. Estonians light bonfires and drink till the wee hours of the morning. During these celebrations it is customary for people to jump the bonfires and make a wish. I would guess that most people would just wish to make it to the other side.
On this night people also head out into the forest to look for the elusive fern blossom which is suppose to bring good luck and fertility to those who find it. According to google no ferns flower, so that's probably why the Estonian population growth is slow.
