Happy St Swithun's Day

Or maybe it should be Swithin, whatever.

St Swithun’s Day is sort of a British Groundhog Day, only without the animal cruelty. Which means it doesn’t get near the press coverage. Supposedly, if it rains on July 15, there’ll be 40 days of rain.[sup]1[/sup] Someone needs to make a movie or something.

[sup]1[/sup] If it doesn’t rain on Swithun’s Day, they’ll still get 6 more weeks of rain, but they won’t be able to blame the saint for it.

Kippers for breakfast, Aunt Helga?

Tis it st swithuns day again?

You forgot the time zone- posted 3:03am BST (British summer time). It was already the 16th here in the UK :wink:

Didn’t rain here yesterday; we’ve barely had a drop in about a month, so we need it, but it looks like we’re finally going to get some rain today.

'TIS, replied Aunt Helga!

Yeah. Meant to post earlier, but forgot. It was still the 15th here when I posted though.

I think it’s supposed to be at his church, but they probably didn’t get any either.
