Happy mid-autumn! (solstice at 13:44 PDT today- http://www.archaeoastronomy.com/2013.html).

My rant of the day, well, one of them:
It's really silly how many western/temperate cultures think of summer as starting in late june. It's a modern convention. Any agrarian society will tell you that mid june is the height of summer (hence historically calling the summer Solstice "mid-summers day"). It's as bad as calling Yule the start of winter; anyone that's been in a real winter knows that's it's full-on cold by that time.

What's worse is all the people that say things like "bla-season-bla has OFFICIALLY started". Stuff and nonsense, I say to that.

Let's call things as they really are in temperate climes- spring from early Feb to early May, summer from May to August, autumn/fall from august to November, and winter from then until February again. If you're in the southern hemisphere, please invert this message.
