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.
