Alpha Challenge #23 - Quarter Day

Well would you know the reason we sometimes pay bills quarterly goes back to the middle ages where 4 days are known as Quarter Days.

The perfect special day for my Craft Barn Alpha Challenge Page and the letter "Q".


The days are close to the Solstices and Equinoxes and are:-

Lady Day - 25th March
Midsummer's Day - 24th June
Michaelmas Day - 29th September
Christmas Day - 25th December

My dictionary definition even had this meaning in it so I highlighted it with glossy accents.

This is a beautiful entry for your book, but I've never paid bills quarterly. Come to think of it, I think my friend Sally pays her trash bill that way, though.

Good history lesson, as well as lovely art.

Great word choice BJ and I love the bright colours for your beautiful page.

Love the page - your book of days for this dictionary challenge has been a real history lesson, I've learnt some fascinating facts (although I did know about quarter days before..)

Elaine said...

Love how you've done this with the four colours and different patterns depicting the seasons!
