Because the seasonal begin/end dates can be computed (and are often hard to remember), it would be helpful to have a "season" parameter for the date() function so that, e.g., if it were currently the spring, "date("X",time())" would return the string "spring".  Thanks!

Is there any reason why this simple feature request has remained in "Open" status for 7 years now without any action?!  This should take all of 5 minutes to add in there.  And if there's some reason why it shouldn't be, then why hasn't anyone marked the status accordingly?

If it is so simple, where is your patch? Seriously though... find a link to the algorithms and find somebody who's interested enough in implementing it.

As that is highly dependent on your current geographic location it's nothing to be added to a datetime-library.

Seasons are the "other way round" on the northern and southern hemisphere and arround the equator there are no seasons at all.

So sorry, you will need to set that up with userland code.
