Midsummer Day here in Latvia it is big celebration Day. People sing special songs, eat special cheese, drink beer and make camp fires and ... . According to the Latvian calendar it is also names day for Liga and Janis (John) - most popular names for girl and a boy and they get special attention during celebration.
Some years ago i heard special Midsummer Day recording on Latvian Radio and eagerly waited one year in hope that they will play it again, so that i could record it on tape (i know that there is no CD with those songs, it is just in archives of Latvia Radio 1). And they played it.
I can not say that i am big fun of this Day, but it is part of my culture and that is why i am sharing it. Here is the song which got my heart the most of that recording: http://www.box.net/shared/qvbrhkxcso Song and Dance Festival - "Janu vakars" (eve of Janis day) by Emilis Melngailis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95RwYPAS8IA&feature=related
