Bloomsday

Did you know 16 June is “Bloomsday” - a celebration of Irish writer James Joyce’s famous novel Ulysses, set on this day in 1904.

Why did he choose this date for the setting of his story? It was the day of the first date with his future wife Nora Barnacle.

And here they are on the England & Wales, Marriage Index in 1931. Happy Bloomsday!
