about Imnarja:
The Feast of St Peter and St Paul, better known as Mnarja or Imnarja. The word L'Imnarja (L-Imnarja) comes from the word luminarja (meaning "illumination"), which in turn is derived from the Latin word Luminare - to light up. The people manifest this by lighting bonfires and candles. This day is a public holiday in Malta and Gozo
