In Sweden 'Midsommar', here in Finland 'Juhannus'(according St. John), that's Midsummer. Dunno if Shakespeare's work was about this stage of summer. But I'm sure I will see all those lovely figures(Oberon, Puck etc) tomorrow after a few ¶l, sprit och vin http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

the "real" summer solstice was on the 21st, but in Sweden the "holiday" Midsommar is always placed on a friday, usually the one after the real thing. This is maybe because we all get too drunk to get to work the next day http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif.. most people go to bed between 3 and 6 amhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
