Thread Name: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
Actually the actual solstice and the 21st got to be quite a distance apart due to the errors in the Julian calendar, which wasn't wholly done away with (as a civil calendar) until the Russian Revolution. By that time I believe it was 13 days out of synch.
