July - Midsummer Magic
Posted on July 29 2019
Midsummer has been celebrated by human beings since the Stone Age. It originated as a solstice festival, but exact dates and traditions vary among cultures. In Nordic countries magic was thought to be strongest during the midsummer, and it became a very potent time for rituals, particularly spells relating to love and fertility.
Midsummer was also the time when witches, fairies, and elves came to the human world to tease them and predict their future. Nature played a large role in the folk magic of midsummer. Midsummer was welcomed with bonfires. It was thought that bonfires would boost the sun’s energy for the rest of the growing season and guarantee a good harvest for the fall, but it was also believed that bonfires could help banish evil spirits and help lead maidens to their future husbands. People wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers in order to deter misfortune, a common practice still today. A young woman would put flowers under her pillow and dream of her future husband. Greenery placed over houses and barns brought good fortune and health to people and livestock. Maidens danced around maypoles decorated with flowers of all types.
These magical traditions are still practiced today all over the world to honor the light and warmth of summer, and to bring about the happiest elements of life. With this Heart + Honey box, we encourage your own celebration of Midsummer Magic!
