29.06.2012 FEAST OF ST PETER AND ST PAUL

The Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul is celebrated in the town of Mdina in Malta. This feast marks an important event in the calendar of Maltese popular customs and traditions. It is a country harvest and folk festival as well as a religious holiday. It dates back even further than the arrival of the Knights of St John in 1530. The festival is named L-Imnarja, a corruption of the Italian ‘Luminara’ and means festival of light. It is named after the bonfires that used to light up the festivities in the towns of Mdina and Rabat. This is a Public Holiday and the school will be closed.
