I found this on the internet and thought it was interesting:
I always found it
strange that the day which marks the beginning of the season of summer
is called "mid-summer", which I understand would mean "middle of
summer". While midsummer is on the summer solstice (June 20–21), the
actual middle of summer would be about August 6, no?
No matter why it is called what it is , I'm just happy that it's here!
