JULY 3: THE START OF THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
“dog days” originally referred to the period of the summer
when sirius, the dog star rose each day around the same time as the sun.
even though the two events don’t line up around this time as perfectly anymore,
it’s still the name given to
the really, really hot stretch of summer from july 3 to august 11.
