Midsummer’s Day (4th, 5th and 6th grade)


Hello Escola Splai’s children !

Today is Midsummer’s Day, the middle of summer, it is the 24th of June, after the longest day (Summer Solstice). Before the change of calendars, Midsummer’s day fell on 5 July.

The longest day in the northern hemisphere is the 20th or 21st of June, but Midsummer’s Day in Europe is the 24th June.

Yesterday, it was Midsummer’s Eve (we call it revetlla de St. Joan). It is a time associated with witches, magic, fairies and dancing. Bonfires were lit to represent the strenght of the Sun.
