Midsummer is June 20 or 21, technically the first day of summer, has the most sunlight of the year
Midwinter is December 20 or 21, technically the first day of winter, has the least sunlight of the year
Why are they misnamed? Midwinter is I believe in February/March and Midsummer is I believe in July/August. I understand that the wheel of the year is based on agricultural cycles, I do not get the continued use of names that are incorrect for times of the year.
Could someone explain this to me?
