When are the Dog Days of Summer?
NOTE TO MEDIA: The Farmers Almanac likes the period from July 3 to August 11. In ancient Rome, the dog days of summer roughly spanned the period July 23 to August 24. (It coincided when Sirius, the Dog Star was at it’s brightest.) The dates seem to be movable, a lot like how Easter is decided. However, just because it is hot out in June, doesn’t mean it is The Dog Days of Summer.
