The night of San Lorenzo is the ‘Night of Shooting Stars’. A magical midsummer night, where all dreams come true.
How could you make dreams come true?
As you might already know, we’ve launched a competition on Instagram, where we’ll be giving a free Psylo top to the winner every month.

Our July Superstar of the #mypsylo challenge is @chilipowny. Her photo got the most likes and the prize is already in the post. You could help others make their dreams reality, by hitting ‘like’. Or you can go for your dream! Post a photo of yourself wearing your Psylo and tag the photo according to our rules. The best photos will be shared on our Instagram account. Get the most likes - get a free top!
But we also understand if you have other dreams than Psylo. That’s OK, too. Because the 10th of August is a magical night. First of all, it falls right in the heart of summer. Whether you are on school holidays or just enjoying the vibe, you have probably been enjoying the extra sunshine. Did you go on new adventures? Met new people? Made new best friends? Fell in love? By this point, you know very well what kind of summer you are having and you’re ready to make the most of it!
Each year between the 9th to 14th of August is the peak of the Perseids meteor shower. Some refer to the Perseids as the "tears ofSan Lorenzo". The saint's tears (or some might say burning ashes) are suspended in the sky but returning to earth once a year on the night of August the 10th - the date of that saint's martyrdom (in 258 AD). This time of year is also perfect for going out at night with good company, to a beach or a countryside field or a festival, and look at the skies.
Waiting for the next shooting star.
If you see one make a wish (only if you manage to keep quiet without shouting: “I’ve seen one!”).
It might come true!
But The Night of Shooting Stars isn't the only reason to look at the skies this August. Tonight, there will be a partial Lunar Eclipse. Another reason to look up to the sky this August is the unique event of a solar eclipse. On Aug. 21st, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the United States for the first time since 1979. If you will be traveling to Oregon to experience the eclipse gathering, make sure you come find us in the market.
