Waverly Fitzgerald's School of the Seasons website and newsletter always have fascinating tidbits of information. According to her site, "The School of the Seasons is open to anyone who is weary of the frantic pace of modern life, who wants to slow down, connect with the natural world, and live a life filled with heart and meaning. Each season has its own flavor, captured in the folklore of seasonal holidays, preserved in rituals and recipes, ceremonies and songs."
Here's the calendar for July.
For example, today is Norwegian midsummer day. "...according to an ancient calendar stick, this was the midpoint of the summer season in Norway."
