Do you know the origin of the phrase "the dog days of summer"? When most of us say it, we mean "those summer days that are so hot, even the dogs just laze around panting from the heat." And since the actual "formal" dates include parts of July and August, that seems pretty reasonable. But it actually stems from the "dog star" (Sirius), and its position in the Ancient Greek and Roman heavens. When Sirius arose shortly before the sun in the northern Mediterranean, it was the "dog days of summer."
