The blessing of every Season..
Think it over.....
Remember the last time you danced in the rain? The happiness of a snowflake falling in the palms of your hand? Or even sweating it out while drinking a cold glass of juice? Well, you may not notuce but these changes seem to change our way and habits. Dont think so? Read on..
When its Summer, thinking of a Raincoat or a Sweater would seem ridiculous!! But thinking of a cold glass of juice would make us happy but would refresh us to a new start. Loving the sound of Rain or dancing in the rain only to catch a cold the next day isnt a bad idea, but a psychological one that would make us happy. If you do look around observently, the seasons that the Earth absorbs across the globe are "Little things of Joy" as i call it.
A season maybe a division of the year, marked by changes in hours of daylight. They result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution.In meteorological terms, the summer solstice and winter solstice (or the maximum and minimum insolation, respectively) do not fall in the middles of summer and winter. The heights of these seasons occur up to seven weeks later because of seasonal lag. Seasons, though, are not always defined in meteorological terms...
But however, did you know the four seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn) have a huge impact on how we lead our daily lives?? It ranges from the food we eat, the drinks we drink, the clothes we wear and the activities we take part in. We even listen to different music, for example, christmas carols in winter. The months of the year are orderly classified prone to different seasons across the globe.
Winter - December, January, February
Spring - March, April, May
Summer - June, July, August
Autumn - September, October, November
Seasons of Happiness
During the winter months the current year ends and a new one starts. The days become shorter and get very cold. Sometimes the precipitation will fall as sleet and snow, and quite often we wake up in the morning to frost and ice on the floor. Winter is usually cold and wet. I personally love winter for the cold weather, trendy winter fahion and the joy of drinking Hot Chocolate or Coffee. People ofcourse sing the joy of Christmas and engage in different activities like skating, skiing, snowboarding, sledding etc, But the most joy comes from making a terrible looking Snowman in your yard or having a snowball fight with your friends.
It's even simple to know when spring arrives. The sun rises in the earlier hours. The days get slightly warmer. Spring flowers start to appear and are beautiful, birds start building their nests etc. Spring is very varied.
Some days it may be cold enough to snow, and some days it is warm enough to play out in the garden. Spring months can also be awfully windy.
Weather varies though in spring, worldwide. During the spring you'll see more people engaging in outdoor activities. A lot of people like to do the whole "spring cleaning" thing. More people are lined up outside of car washes. More kids are playing outside. Godknows if this is a myth or not, but more people seem to be falling in love (the whole spring is here, love is in the air thing).
Out of all most people vote Summer as the season people look forward to. The days become both warmer and longer, the sun shines, and the school holidays to enjoy. Although sunny weather is very fun and we can spend more time outside, the sun's rays can harm the body. There are some things you need to do to protect yourselves. You shouldn't ever look straight at the sun because it will damage your eyes. Additionally, you have to protect your skin from the suns rays so that you don't get sunburned. Summer weather can vary, but if we are lucky, June,
July and August will bring some warm sunny days. A heatwave during the summer can boost sales for companies selling drinks and ice-cream whilst a mild winter can have a disastrous impact on the ski industry. Well, it does have less clothing for everyone!!! It's hot out there.. Summer it is the time that you can see the earth is alive. The smell of blooming flowers or a fresh cut lawn. It is a time that you can feel the warmth of the sun and the warmth of a breeze. To walk barefooted, dig your toes into the sand. Sit outside in the evening and listen to crickets and see the firefly's as the as they add sparkle to the night. Look up at the night sky in search of shooting stars. The sound of a warm summer rain as it cleanses the earth. Lay in your bed with the windows open so the night will share it's smell and sound to soon put you to sleep.
Autumn is a season filled with change. Although it is often warm and sunny during the daytime, it can be cold at night. In Autumn, leaves fall off the trees and hedges. Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated across China it is the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, is an ancient holiday for Chinese. The day has important meaning because it was associated with a lot of fairy tales and famous poems. In the past, ancient scholars wrote articles and poems, then discussed with other to see who could express their admiration of the full moon and moonlit scene best.The Chinese Families sit together enjoying a year's harvest and mooncake.Additionally, Autumn can bring strong winds and a lot of rain. Everyone rakes up piles of leaves and jump in them, go to pumpkin patches, go to apple festivals, go on hayrides, go trick-or-treating, go to football games, go to haunted houses, think about their christmas lists, hope for winter to be short and not too cold. (FYI Pumpkin patches are so much fun!!)
Rain is one of the most beautiful moments of nature. Rain is the falling of water from the clouds coming back to the earth, which is taken indirectly by the sun. Rain is a very beautiful moment that can enhance any person. The falling water droplets make the air cool and environment calm.The sky on a rainy day The sky is overcast with clouds. The sun is not visible. Sometimes the day becomes dark. The sounds of thunders and lightnings shudder the windows. Rain is a great blessing after the summer heat. In India the scorching heat of the summer months of May and June causes great suffering to animal and plant-life alike. The Earth gets parched and cracked at places. The Indian farmers consider Rain a blessing from God for their farms to yield crops. Well, not everyone likes it when it rains too much. They cause natural disasters, diseases etc. However, when it rains in the middle of the summer, its heaven on earth!!Note that, however, that in some more tropical areas, they don't have four seasons just like us. They may have: "spring", "summer", "monsoon", and "rainy". The seasons are completely reversed between the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere. When it's winter here, it's summer there. When it's spring here, it's fall there. Some climates, especially near the equator, don't really show this, though. Tropical rain forests, for example, pretty much only experience "hot and rainy", "hot and REALLY rainy", and "OMG! hot and monsoon!".
The changing weathers across the world is also an important concern for those involved with emergency planning and civil contingencies.Should staffing levels in hospitals be increased during icy weather to account for injuries caused by slips? Should millions of pounds be spent on improving flood defenses for a given location?
Most scientists are predicting that climate change will result in more severe weather. Should these predictions prove accurate then weather is likely to have an even greater impact on our lives in the decades ahead.
The seasons we experience can bring a wide variety to the year for those locations that experience them in full. The weather in each one may allow people to engage in activities that they cannot perform in others — skiing in the winter, swimming in the summer. Each season brings with it its own potential dangers, but also its own particular brand of beauty.
So whether it is Rain, Summer, Auntumn or Spring enjoying the blessing of each season couldnt make you more happier!!
