HAPPY SUMMER SOLTICE
Midsummer was thought to be a time of magic when evil spirits appeared. Pagans often wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers . One of them was a plant called "chase-devil." Today it's the St. John's Wort plant.
The Druids celebrated the day as the "wedding of Heaven and Earth." Today June is believed to be a lucky month for a wedding.
Now that you know all of the above, have a happy Summer Soltice.
