Festivals Around the Globe

Inti Raymi, Peru- The Inti Raymi (sun festival) is the Incan celebration of winter solstice, which in Peru falls on 24th of June. It’s one of the most important celebrations in Incan culture, seeing in the New Year and celebrating the sun god, Inti, with nine days of dancing, processions, costumes and sharing good food. Its roots are admittedly gory, centering around the bloody sacrifice of llamas, but today, the ritual is purely symbolic, and the llama population thrives.
