The Pegan Sun

There is an annual ritual in Columbia where members of a church welcome the pegan sun outside by an enormous bonfire.  It’s high energy, but there are also a lot of quiet moments that happen throughout, especially beforehand.

This is one of those quiet moments where a regular participant is playing the accordion and singing in a dark room surrounded by candles before the festivities start.

Participants lit sparklers to help welcome the sun.

The long awaited pegan sun.
