Midsummer's Day, known in Tai-tastigon as High Summer's Day,[1] is the middle of summer in the Tastigon Calendar. The day before Midsummer's Day is sometimes known as Midsummer's Eve.[2]

Midsummer's Day should not to be confused with the Summer Solstice, which is a few days later.



At Tentir, students are allowed to go home on Midsummer's Day to help with the Minor Harvest.[3]
