    First Day of Winter? Isn't that June 1st, Google get it wrong?

    Just went to my homepage: google.com.au and it showed this:


    First Day of Winter 2013



    But doesn't Australia officially list 1st of June as the first of winter? I know the 21st is the Winter Solstice, but that's when the earth starts to tilt the other way and days get longer again.

    a few years ago I went to Ayers Rock for the 21st of June, just so I didn't have to get up too early! I was a landscape photographer and my job was getting up early every day of the year anyway, so I wanted a holiday and 7.30am sunrise was a sleep in

    June 1st is the first day of winter, that's what I was taught. This year it was warm though!
    I love to shop!
