What is day of the dog?

2 Answers

To the Greeks and Romans, the “dog days” occurred around the time Sirius appears to rise alongside the sun, in late July in the Northern Hemisphere. They believed the heat from the 2 stars combined is what made these days the hottest of the year, a period that could bring fever or even catastrophe.
