Watching Wimbledon and rooting for Andy Murray. Probably too much to hope that he may have any connection to the many Murrays in my tree, but you never know.
Tonight is Sankthansaften, Midsummer’s Eve. Not something that we ever really paid much attention to when I was growing up in Northumberland, but here in Norway it is a big event with bonfires.
I understand that Scotland and particularly the border regions used to have festivities to celebrate Midsummer. I wonder what my ancestors used to get up to out in the fields on the long light summer nights.
