P.S. Traditionally, from July 6 to July 7, Ukraine celebrates the magic folk festival of Ivan Kupala. Traditions and activities connected with this holiday dated back to Pagan rituals. Its name was originally Kupala. After the adaption by Orthodox Christianity, it got the word "Ivan" (John, here John the Baptist).
