Thread Name: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Surely the "longest day" which is around the end of June would be the natural "mid" point of the year in the "summer" season.

Until 1756 (or there-abouts) New Years Day was on April 25th, so actual "dates" don't mean a great deal.
