I probably ought to, but I haven't thought much about alien seasons. Jarrda has the usual four seasons: shel (winter), shtar (spring), juzh (summer), zhan (fall). Although around here a more accurate translation would be non-summer, early summer, summer, and late summer. I can't even imagine what the weather would be like on a planet orbiting Procyon, or even if a stable orbit is possible with Procyon B nearby.
