Midsummer is celebrated in Finland on the weekend following the 19th of June. The traditions of Midsummer go back hundreds of years. In the olden times, people celebrated the god of weather “Ukko” during Midsummer, hoping for good harvest and fertility.
Even though the years have passed and the society has become secularized, the Midsummer spells remain. Even today, young women cast love spells in nature to guarantee success in love and to see who will be their future husband.
