Celebration of summer, winter: Lest Southern Hemisphere be forgotten.


The solstice is passed, and depending on where you live, it's either the start of summer, the start of winter, or you're near the equator and it's pretty much just another day. But that last one is a little hard to provide images for, so....

Also, the Summer section probably has a bit of a British focus, because it's harder to come up with random weird and interesting things for places you haven't been. My apologies. I think a broad topic like "Summer" is honestly harder to be diverse with than a more narrow topic (at least if it's one person writing it).

Summer

As the ancient song goes:

Sumer is icumen in
Lhude sing cuccu!

Winter

As the 1916 poem by Ezra Pound goes:

Winter is icumen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.
Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver,
Damm you; Sing: Goddamm.
