In prehistoric times, the summer was a joyous time of year for those living in northern latitudes. The snow was gone, and the ground had thawed; warm temperatures had returned; flowers bloomed; the leaves had returned to deciduous trees. Some herbs could be harvested for medicinal purposes and others. The food was easier to find. They collected what was harvested. Although many months of warm weather kept falling back before the light period, the days began to shorten, so the return of the cold season was inevitable.4 The first (or only) full moon in June (boreal ) it is called honeymoon. Tradition holds that this is the best time to harvest honey from bee hives. At this time of year, between planting and harvesting crops, it has been the traditional month for weddings. This is because many ancient peoples believed that the great [sexual] union of the Goddess and God occurred in early summer. Since it was unlucky to compete with the deities, many couples delayed their wedding until June (Northern Hemisphere). June is still preferred to marry in the north. In some traditions, the newly married couples were fed dishes and drinks with honey for the first month of their married life, to encourage love and fertility. The surviving vestige of this tradition is alive in the name given to newlyweds immediately after the wedding: the honeymoon.

Another function of bonfires was to generate sympathetic magic: giving a boost to the energy of the sun to keep it strong in the rest of the growing season and guarantee a bountiful harvest. In ancient Sweden, a tree on the summer solstice was created and decorated in each city. It was the solstice tree, usually a pine tree. The villagers danced around him. Women and girls were accustomed to bathing in the local river. This was a magical ritual, meant to bring rain for crops. This is the basis of the current rite Easter tree.
