Tomorrow is the summer solstice.

The summer solstice is also known as Midsummer, with the night before being “Midsummer’s eve”, the night of mythological Shakespearean magic. Have an impromptu Midsummer’s eve party outdoors in your garden tonight. If you already created an outdoor nook, or decorated your garden trees, this is a perfect night to celebrate. Wear flowers in your hair, serve summery drinks, and look carefully for the fairies and elves who are more easily seen on this night. A bonfire is a traditional midsummer’s eve party element in Europe. This may not be feasible where you live, but why not barbecue instead?

If you are setting up an outdoor dinner table, you might decorate your table with this quote from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.
