For those in the Southern hemisphere, winter begins June 1 and ends 31 August. Some of the festivals and holidays during the colder months help to mark off the days until it is warmer again. All Hallows, also known as Samhain, begins November 1. All Saints Day is October 31 and is also known as Hallo'ween. There are also mainland countries of Europe which celebrate St Martin's Day on 11 November. This is followed by Christmas, Yule, and other similarly timed religious and secular occasions, which happen in December and January.
