MIDSUMMER EVE In northern countries, June 21, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemi-sphere, was balder's Day, celebrated with bonfires and the observance of the sunset and sunrise. In many countries it was the custom to gather mistle-toe on this day. Scientifically, it is the day of the summer solstice.

We invite to see pictures, Crayon drawing or Mezzotint in the our art gallery.
