In Earth's northern hemisphere, today marks the summer solstice – the official start of summer and the longest day of the year. Of course, that doesn't mean that every place experiences the exact same climate. Consider the difference between Alaska and Louisiana. The sun is “up” a lot longer in a place like Anchorage, but the weather is much hotter in New Orleans.
That got me wondering about other countries – and other worlds. Authors and characters, do your homes have distinct seasons? If so, what are they like – and do you celebrate the start of each?
