Bloomsday is a celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set in Dublin on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June around the world. Joyce chose the date because it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend. The name comes from Leopold Bloom, the Ulyssean protagonist.

Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.
