Default Sant Joan.

Tonight many of the locals will go to the beach where they go to the waters edge, turn their backs to the sea, throw coins into the water and make a wish, i am told they throw flowers as well , it turns into a bit of a party aparently .

Default Some more info about Sant Joan.

Real Mallorcans do not much value or even, worship the sun. Far from it. They fear and respect the sun for its unforgiving strength and harsh impact on the land, the crop, plants and animals. On the island, country houses used to be built with few windows and small ones in size at that, just to keep the heat out.

I think a large number of locals "the Spanish ones" anyway will tonight be making their wishes in front of the television!
