    Stargate Tone: do you Bert celebrate the middsummernight ?
    Bertrum Quan: Solstice?

    Bertrum Quan: It's coming up very soon, I think
    Stargate Tone: hm...in case I understand right....
    Fael Illyar: is soltice the 24th?
    Fael Illyar: solstice
    Stargate Tone: is that the day when the daytime; light is the most long...or is it the day when the daytime and night are in complete balance ?
    Bertrum Quan: June 21 I think
    Bertrum Quan: The longest day of the year.
    Stargate Tone: ok
    Stargate Tone: then that's the same that has also this 'name' middsummernight
    Stargate Tone: in some cultures
    Stargate Tone: here in Finland it was before the 24th, but then changed to follow the calender, that the eve is on friday
    Fael Illyar: Since 1955, it's always been on saturday on the week June 20th to 26th
    Stargate Tone: and there's been much magic withing this night 'on the old days'; before my birth to this life
    Stargate Tone: ahhh
    Stargate Tone: thought that changed much later on...
    Fael Illyar: well, wikipedia can be wrong too :)
    Stargate Tone: anyway...as it was the special night 'back then' in Finland...
    Stargate Tone: as young mades made many magical things in order to see there 'coming fiance'....
    Stargate Tone: and the feast was the most romantic feast
    Stargate Tone: and lost of babies was born after 9 months of that night :)***
    Stargate Tone: lots
    Fael Illyar: Ah, yes :)
    Fael Illyar: so, very many have their birthdays on march :)
    Stargate Tone: but there's still left much of that cuz of them fires that are used to lit
    Stargate Tone: ah yes
    Bertrum Quan: In the US this year the summer solstice is the same date as Father's Day
    Stargate Tone: ahaa
    Stargate Tone: so have you some special way to celebrate the solstice ?
    Stargate Tone: something romantic ?
    Bertrum Quan: Some solstice has so much light! It's a treat when the weather cooperates.
    Bertrum Quan: Summer (not Some)
    Stargate Tone: ***<3<3<3***
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: and yes..the light use to keep ppl awake longer than normally :)***
    Stargate Tone: do you have winter Bert ?
    Stargate Tone: with snow and so
    Bertrum Quan: Hopefully not on June 21!
    Stargate Tone: ah...ment that if there's the same difference for summer than we have here in Finland...
    Stargate Tone: that the nature gives more romantic possibilities *
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: (star may now be in the very romantic moode)
    Stargate Tone: (we use to say of huge snow, that it's gonna melt at least on the middsummernight)
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: as 'back then' it was the first possibility to the romantic night to most of them ppl...young people I mean)
    Fael Illyar: not old people?
    Stargate Tone: well...they didnt' have even that romantic night anymore...
    Stargate Tone: so much has the teckhnology improved life in Finland ...would say that in very short time
    Stargate Tone: but also that was much culturel too; hard rules what comes to romancies...
    Stargate Tone: but what created that culture, was the hard nature with so short summer
    Stargate Tone: much...sure not all
    Fael Illyar has a hard time connecting romance with hard rules...
    Stargate Tone: ah...but you see; the middsummer night 'all got free'...as nobody needed to work at night...
    Stargate Tone: and there was hiding places by the nature...
    Fael Illyar: Ah, yes, the day with less rules.
    Stargate Tone: that is why the middsummernight had this special romantic atmosphare
    Stargate Tone: yes...cuz them older ppl had not the strenght to be awake no matter the more light...
    Stargate Tone: and coundnt' guard what them young ppl do...
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: well...was that good or bad that them changes with life 'killed' that much from this feast...just wanted to 'look back' and think that romantic event that is not anymore for so many to experience...
    Stargate Tone: but to my opinion them changes are good...them possibilities to expereince romance at any time of the year
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: but more private....not so wide atmosphare in the whole country
    Bertrum Quan: Need to wish you both a great day.
    Fael Illyar: have a nice day bert :)
    Fael Illyar: oh wait, good night :)
    Stargate Tone: have good night Bert *
    Fael Illyar: Pleasant dreams :)
    Bertrum Quan: Thanks! Take care.
    Fael Illyar is still half asleep somehow.
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
