What is the meaning of a "quarter day?"?

In American English, a quarter day is any of the four days that mark the start of a new quarter of the year, when quarterly payments on rent, etc. are due. The term applies only to business days, which in America are defined by law as Monday through Friday, except for federal holidays. If a payment is not made by the fifth day after it becomes due, the person owing the money may be sued for failure to pay.

In Britain, Ireland, and most other countries of Europe, the term refers to one of the three major commercial holidays: Christmas, New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. These holidays occur on different dates depending on the date of Easter, but they always fall on a Sunday. Thus, if a payment is not made by the third Thursday of April, the person owing the money may be sued for failure to pay.

In England, Wales, and Ireland, the legal term "quarter's time" means the beginning of a new period of three months, so that interest will begin to accrue on a loan at the end of each quarter. The equivalent term in the United States is "three-month period," although this does not have the same precise meaning under U.S. law.

June 24 is Midsummer's Day in England and Wales. It is the longest night of the year, so this is the date when farmers delay sowing their crops in order to get the best harvest possible.
