São João night

It was cold and windy, though summer was should have already come. Nonetheless, the sky was clear. It made my night.
Lights of lanterns and stars. Also, small fireworks from time to time. I was surprised. It looked like magic, a night taken out of fairytales.
According to tradition, laterns are lit to fill up the sun. As after solstice, the days begin to shorten, laterns and sent out flying to the sun.
It really wasn't that much of a big deal, but I love gazing at the sky. And this year, at São João, the night sky was the best of my life.
