ymmv, but middle of summer is not generally tamale season. I am sure in Mexico it does not really matter, but at least in South Texas, tamaladas (tamale making parties) are more of a holiday season activity. If I had to wag, it is because there is also a tradition of butchering hogs when it is cooler as well (Us German/Czech have our sausage making parties in the winter also).
