My Feast on St John the Baptist Feast Day

This feast day, similar to the saint day held in each Mexican city, is only celebrated in Florence. Banks and schools were closed so there were no classes at the British Institute. Tonight, fireworks will mark this special day for St. John the Baptist.

From my perspective, it was a great day to rest, try to absorb the world-changing news of the Brexit passage, and finally eat a delicious lunch of porchetta. If you're unfamiliar with this Tuscan bit of culinary ingenuity, here's a New York Times article that will explain it.


  1. Actually the Feast of San Juan, which is the same Feast you are mentioning in Florence, is a very big day here in Spain as well where people flock to the beaches and burn bonfires and are up all night. Apparently to jump over the fire, the folk wisdom says, will cleanse your sins. Plus it is just a big party all night long.
