Viva Sao Joao !

The Sao Joao festivities were celebrated with great pomp and enthusiasm across the state. On this day the Catholics enact the biblical tale of -John the Baptist leaped for joy in his mother, Elizabeth's, womb when she was told of Jesus' conception. The tradition of jumping into the well is considered to be a representation of the saint leaping into Elizabeth's womb.

NT GoGoaNow captured the traditional festive celebrations of the Saints birth at Siolim.
