Thread Name: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Only funning, I believe Shakesperes Midsummer night's dream was written for and about 24th June and as a child I was always taught the difference between the two dates. In school we had a mid summers day celebration on 24th of June-that I think is still the tradditional day for mid summer. The distinction between that and the solstice is common confusion.Solstice day being my birthday, and the time I was born I was told by my mother when she was alive was 04.21. So sunrise solstice for me.
