What is pattern of seasons and day-nights on Antipodes?

Antipodes refer to two points situated in opposite side of the earth, such that a straight line drawn through the earth from one to the other passes through the centre, e.g., London, England and Antipodes Island, south-east of New Zealand, are approximately antipodes. To be exact antipodes, two places must be distant from each other by l80° of longitude, and one must be as many degrees of north latitude as the other of south latitude. At antipodes, both the seasons and the pattern of day and night are thus opposite, i.e. winter at one and the summer at the other, and noon at one is simultaneous with midnight at the other point.
