In Denmark bonfires are lit to celebrate the Nordic heathen tradition.  Sometimes an effigy of a Witch is placed at the top of the pyre.  The heathens attributed the longest day of the year with all manner of differents .superstitions including magic.  We also take the opportunity to rememeber the victims of Witch burnings that took place in Denmark in the 1600´s.
