Today is a cross-quarter day?

in: General

It’s so confusing!

I thought that November 1 was the cross-quarter day.

A cross-quarter day is midway between a solstice and an equinox, but I never bothered to check to see if November 1 was exactly half way between. If you get out your calendar and count off the days, you will find that, indeed, today is the autumnal cross-quarter day. :)

However, if you are Catholic or Scottish (or both I suppose), you might consider Martinmas, November 11, to be the cross-quarter day. Wanna know why it’s important to Scots? You gotta wait until the 11th.
