I have a question. Why does MIDsummer Festival start on the first day of summer?I did the achievements last year and boy did the corpse hopping through IF take a long time. It was spawn, live for a few seconds, and ghost run as far as I can, Rez, repeat. The guild perk will help anyone trying it this year.

My limited understanding of things leads me to believe it's something like the following: it's the beginning of the season, as labeled, but it's a good ways through the hot-times that would mark what summer means/was. A cursory glance at Wikipedia leads me to believe this time WAS midsummer before the current calendar was instituted. Someone with more understanding could probably help better.

That and the fact that no one hangs out in IF anymore. Place is a ghost town on my server.

June 21st is observed as the start of summer but it's not. As the summer solstice it's actually near the middle of summer, as Dec 21 in the middle of winter.

Because June 21st is the longest day, as such is "Mid Summer" as it only gets closer to winter from here.
