SM-001b A04 religion: On the eve of San Juan a fire was lit with the hay blessed by San Juan the previous year. The people would jump over the fire and exclaim “ The Mayor out !” or “The Mange out !” or whatever. On the eve of San Juan they took water from the well.With the dew they would strip off from the waist up and they would roll in the grass. One kid was born “stunted” and they made a fissure in an oaktree. On the night of San Juan they brought him there to the tree. There were two Juans and they said three times: "Don Juan, karrak Juan, Viva San Juan" and sticking the kid through the fissure. Nowadays, that kid has six children.
