nice sharing. St. John played a very important role in the life of our lord Jesus and it is but natural to celebrate on his feast day. whenever we talk about st. John , we recall the baptism with water thats why is most part of the country, philippines and in other nation there is this feast of people getting wet with water as they perform in street dancing and it is believe that its a blessing to be part of it.

Hello fairygreen. How nice to hear that you are having a wonderful time celebrating St. John's feast. I seriously have no idea what St. John represent to the Catholic community. I'm not a Catholic though and had never celebrated any Saint's festivities.
