Sânzienele – Romanian Term for the Good Fairies of Love

Dimitrie Cantemir was the first Romanian scholar who studied this traditional celebration with ancient roots. Every year, on 24th of June, Sânzienele come down to Earth and bless the Romanian territory with love and magic. They also became the first pagan celebration that appears on the Orthodox Christian calendar.
