Guernsey has many smaller islands surrounding it which namely Herm, Sark, Alderney, Burhou, Jethou, Brechou, Little Sark and Lihou with a total of 78 kms in stretch. All these island join together to make the place look more like a fairy land. Guernsey was simply the tip of a cape jutting into the English Channel, when it and other freshly-originated surrounding islands broke off around 6000 BC. Neolithic farmers took up shop in the area, and created three menhirs (Breton for ‘long stone’; also known as a monolith) which can even be seen now.

The term “Sarnia” denotes the area in which people celebrate their festivals and other celebrations. This term actually has emerged in connection to the Roman tradition. Around 933 when the Duchy of Normandy annexed the islands from the Duchy of Brittany all of the Roman way of traditions changed.
