Hello, Summer!

NeON invites you to celebrate the start of Summer

The word solstice is from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice). For the ancient Pagans, the Summer Solstice was celebrated by performing a series of fertility and purification rituals in order to bring this power into their own lives. Ancient Pagans would build bonfires, to represent the sun, and then leap over them as a purification rite -- they believed that fire was cleansing, and the energy of fire is strongest on the Summer Solstice

We're pretty sure bonfires won't go down with the building or the fire dept so instead we figured we'd celebrate the official first day of summer with some cool treats. Happy Summer, NeON!
