Dera Gai (St. John’s Day) celebrated on the 24th of June 🐓 An Aruban tradition celebrated every year on this day. This festivity originated from the South part of Mexico. It is a tradition introduced for the remembrance to the sacrifice of an apostle called San Juan Bautista (according to the biblical history he was decapitated by order of King Herodes). Back in time this tradition had to do with superstition, spirits and God in connection to offerings thanking the Gods for good harvest. Cunukeronan (farmers) burn trunks of plants and wood on this days for purification and goodluck. Jumping over fires, dancing and singing. And men get the chance to hit the rooster’s head with a corn stick and blind folded as in the pictures (see the video). I am proud to see young girls and boys carry this tradition. Valuable aspects of our culture and traditions are being preserved and cherished by our future: children and youngsters. As a member (during my childhood and teenage years) of Kids and Youth in Action dance group I performed this song ‘Dera Gai’ and presented every week for tourists that visited the island at ‘Bon Bini Festival’ for several years. With great pleasure I witnessed how my own dance group back in the days perform beautifully. “A nations culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people” - Mahatma Ghandi *Bon Bini means Welcome *Dera Gai means (Burry rooster) *Source: visitaruba.com #aruba #deragai #tradition #red #yellow #rooster #24thofjune #stjohnsday #dance #missworld #missaruba #missworlaruba #speakyourheart #culture #value
