    Don't see any details suggesting this is a northern hemisphere only thing?!?

    Would be smart to remember that June 21st is the shortest day of the year, and winter for the other half of the planet.

    well, it's now clear it's available to EU countries only, however the majority of info and title which is now visible, wasn't there when I made my comment.

    Anyway, couple of missed opportunities to incorporate some cool winter and cultural events from the southern hemisphere.
