About Imnarja:
The Feast of St Peter and St Paul, better known as Mnarja. Mnarja, or l-Imnarja (pronounced lim-nar-ya) is one of the most important dates on the Maltese cultural calendar.  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.
