The climate is in the temperate zone. The winters are not particularly cold, with mean temperatures in January and February of 0.0 �C, and the summers are cool, with a mean temperature in August of 15.7 �C.

Denmark has an average of 121 days per year with precipitation, on average receiving a total of 712 mm per year; autumn is the wettest season and spring the driest.

Because of Denmark's northern location, the length of the day with sunlight varies greatly.

There are short days during the winter with sunrise coming around 9:00 am and sunset 4:30 pm, as well as long summer days with sunrise at 4:00 am and sunset at 10 pm The shortest and longest days of the year have traditionally been celebrated.

The celebration for the shortest day corresponds roughly with Christmas (Danish: jul), and modern celebrations concentrate on Christmas Eve, 24 December.

The Norse word j�l is a plural, indicating that pre-Christian society celebrated a season with multiple feasts.

Christianity introduced the celebration of Christmas, resulting in the use of the Norse name also for the Christian celebration.

Efforts by the Catholic Church to replace this name with kristmesse were unsuccessful.

The celebration for the longest day is Midsummer Day, which is known in Denmark as sankthansaften (St. John's evening).

Celebrations of Midsummer have taken place since pre-Christian times.
