Meteorological Spring. Say that five times fast.
Go ahead. I’ll wait.
Now, name the four seasons. (not the Vivaldi classic)
No. It’s not a trick. Some people start at the season we are currently in. What season did you start with?
If we divide the year into the four seasons we get the Meteorological seasons, not the ones determined by the position of the sun. This means winter starts on December 1. Why not just start at the beginning of the calendar? Because in the northern climates, December is . . . well, cold.
