  • How do you say that in English?

    Best answer: For the filling of a glass of wine (or beer) most people would say "Please fill it up". If the glass was still half full, many people might say "Please top it up".

    Just saying "Pour" is not right, and would sound very impolite.

  • Why is the first day of summer called midsummers day?

    Best answer: Because the technical dates that seasons begin are different than when people generally perceive the seasons. Science establishes summer as beginning on the summer solstice, but people commonly think of summer as being the warm months. For example, if I got married on June 6, most people would say I had a summer... show more
    Best answer: Because the technical dates that seasons begin are different than when people generally perceive the seasons. Science establishes summer as beginning on the summer solstice, but people commonly think of summer as being the warm months. For example, if I got married on June 6, most people would say I had a summer wedding, not a spring wedding. Therefore, in common understanding, by June 21, the date of the summer solstice this year, people have already been thinking it's summertime for some time.

    There are many terms like this, terms that arise out of common perceptions that don't jibe with technical definitions, which technical definitions likely came later. We call 12:00am "midnight" when it's technically the end of night as it technically starts the beginning of the morning hours, for example. Another example is we still say "the four corners of the Earth" to refer to those places on Earth farthest away from us even though we know the Earth is a sphere and has no corners and know there is only one place on Earth that is farthest from where we are, that place being the dipole of our present position on Earth's sphere. If in Denver, Colorado and planning to go to Juneau, Alaska, we would tend to say we're heading up to Juneau for the simple fact that it's north of us and so has a position further up the page on maps we generally use, never mind that Juneau, being right on the ocean and so barely above sea level, is technically lower in elevation than Denver and so "down," not "up." That's just three of many such examples, so you should not get stuck on the technicality of such things or you will drive yourself mad.
