    Kupala Night,also known as Feast of St. John the Baptist, is a celebration that relates to the summer solstice. The Ukrainian, Belarusian and Russian name of this holiday combines "Ivan" (John — the Baptist) and Kupala which, apart from referring to a traditional goddess in Slavic mythology, is related to a word derived from the Slavic word for bathing. The latter is reinterpreted as John's baptizing people through full immersion in water (therefore his Biblical title of the Baptist). However, the tradition of Kupala predates Christianity. Due to the popularity of the pagan celebration, with time it was simply accepted and reestablished as one of the native Christian traditions intertwined with local folklore.
