According to a legend, in ancient times Eve (Hämarik) had a task of putting out the light of the sun every evening and Dawn had to light up the fire every morning. In northern countries summer is the time of white nights. At this time the two met and gave the sun to eachother, and fell in love with eachother. The Creator, whom they both served, noticed that and suggested to arrange their marriage. That way they could still do their job and be happy at the same time. But lovers refused, claiming that their love would always be fresh and new, if they could forever remain just bride and bridegroom. The Creator respected their wish and blessed them.
