July 22nd Dog Days of Summer
The Dog Days of summer last from July 22nd to September 22nd when heat, drought, thunderstorms, lethargy, mad dogs and bad luck abound. Let’s face it, it’s hot, even in places we normally think of as cool. For the next month we all have to suffer through these days, making the best of it in whatever way we can. With the invention of air conditioning, life has improved through the dog days, but still you need to take care when outside. Remember the sunscreen!
How to celebrate – Stay cool! Eat foods that help you body remain cool. Drink plenty of liquids.
