Wreaths of St. John, Štanjel

On St. John's Day on 24 June.

On St. John's Day on 24 June, the women of Štanjel make wreaths from the plant St. John's Cross, which blooms at that time of year. They then hang the wreaths on front doors to protect the house from bad luck. The custom was revived a couple of years ago by the Štanjel Tourist Association.
