Seasons are times of the year that have different weather. There are four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each season lasts about three months.
Winter is a season that starts in December and ends in March. It is often cold, and there is usually snow. People often wear warm clothes, like coats and hats, during winter. Spring is a season that starts in March and ends in June. It is often the time when plants start to grow and flowers bloom. People often wear lighter clothing during spring. Summer is a season that starts in June and ends in September. It is often hot, and people often go to the beach or swimming. People often wear shorts and t-shirts during summer.
What is your favorite season?
Each season lasts approximately three months because the Earth's tilt creates different amounts of sunlight throughout the year. The first day of the season is called the equinox and is when the sun is directly over the equator. The four seasons are not evenly divided. Spring and autumn have the nearly the same amount of days, while summer has the most and winter the least.
