Goans bound to splash with ‘Sao Joao’

Locals in Goa bound to swimming pools and small ponds to celebrate the traditional Catholic festival ‘Sao Joao’ across the coastal state on Monday.

Traditionally, people jump into the well but since the wells are speedy disappearing, people favour to celebrate it in swimming pools.

The festival saw revellers plunging into water bodies since daylight to commemorate the day in the name of St John De Baptista who considered to have baptised Jesus Christ.
