What is the point?

Somebody please tell me the point of having on the calendar 'the first day of fall' and such? If you can't tell by the trees and animals and weather you must live near the equator or poles where's there's MAYBE two seasons (if you're lucky).

      I actually never remember the actual start day so for me it is a reminder of when the seasons change exactly.
