Funny how everyone is so upFunny how everyone is so up in arms over such a point. My daughter and family live in New Zealand and the first day of winter is officially December 1st. I do understand the explanation of the equinox and solstice are referring to the Northern Hemisphere, however, as we all can see, the rites of the passage of each season coincides on a calendar and in MOST of our minds as on or around the 21st of March, June, September and December. NZ was founded as NZ rather than the Maori Aotearoa with the settlers and explorers that were Dutch & British and many of their current customs coincide with the UK. Strange to me to see this difference.
