Mar 14, Albania: Summer Day

Summer Day (Albanian: Dita e Veres) is an annual public holiday in Albania and is always held on 14 March. The holiday marks the rebirth of nature following the end of winter.

Summer Day is a pagan festival whose observation and traditions originated in the region around Elbasan, in central Albania. On the outskirts of the city, a shrine was built to Zana, the goddess of hunting, forests and nature. The tradition was that Zana would come out of the shrine after her winter hibernation on 14 March.
