Should I? You<=>Christmas in Australia?
HintIt has nothing to do with the precise date. What time of year would it be in Australia?
Answer"Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?"
In the rebus, the question is being asked whether to ask if you are lesser than, equal to, or greater than Christmas Day in the southern hemisphere, which is celebrated on the same Summer day each year.
From Shakespeare's Sonnet 18:
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
