Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: People don’t notice if it’s winter or summer if they’re happy.?

2. In which play by whom would you find the characters Oberon, Titania, Puck and Bottom?

3. It’s saison in French,  stagione in Italian, estación in Spanish and wa in Maori, what is it in English?

4. What are equinoxes and solstices and when do they occur?

5. Is the quote in question one right?

Points for answers:

Willdwan got four (only a half each for #2 and #4 which had two parts). However in the spirit of the season I’m awarding you an electronic batch of shortbread.

Gravedodger  and J Bloggs both got four and also win an electronic batch of shortbread.

Answers follow the break.

1. Anton Checkov.

2. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.

3. Season.

4.  Equinox: The date/time when the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator making night and day of approximately equal length; about March 20th and September 22nd.

Solstice: the time/date when the sun is furtherest from the equator: about June 21st and December 22nd.

5.

    Cheers for the shortbread. Should have read the questions more carefully. Probably should try some Checkov too. I love this one from Albert Camus, pining for Algeria while in Northern Europe.

    “In the midst of winter, I found within my heart an unconquerable summer.”

    Regards, Will.
