Midsummers Day

The middle of summer comes after the longest day and it is a time associated with witches, magic, fairies and dancing.

At midnight on Midsummer's Eve, young girls should scatter rose petals before them and say

Roses leaves, rose leaves

Rose leaves I strew

He that will love me

Come after me now.

Then the next day, their true love will visit them.
