(July 15) Today we're celebrating . . .  Saint Swithin’s Day


Saint Swithin’s Day
On this day in 971 CE, the relics of the Bishop of Winchester, Saint Swithin, were entombed in Winchester Cathedral.

English tradition teaches that since it rained heavily that day, July 15th will mark the start of a 40-day rainy season.
