The four seasons are the way mother nature lets us know she can’t make up her mind on what food, clothes and activities she likes. Winter, spring, summer and fall, each, in their own way, affect various aspects of our lives. Specifically, Summer and Winter have extremes which determine change our life during those few months. Sometimes, people’s daily activities, habits and style of life change as the seasons vary. I personally, believe that winter offers a lot more comfort than summer and is overall a better season for food, activities and clothes.
The type of food people consume varies during summer and winter. In summer, because the weather is so hot, people would prefer to eat cold food like ice-cream to keep them cool, in the hot sun, Kids, for instance, sell ice cold lemonade, because it counters the heat of the summer. However, during winter, people will prefer to eat hot and spicy food which would help them to keep themselves warm like hot soups and stews. I love the idea of warming myself up with a nice bowl of homemade soup and cuddling up by the fire. Just as ice cream is sold during summer months, restaurants serve soup during winter months. It is rare that anyone would want a glass of lemonade when there is snow outside, rather they would enjoy a piping hot mug of hot chocolate.
People’s way of dressing also tends to change because of the different seasons. During summer people will usually wear casual clothes like t-shirts, shorts, dresses and sleeveless tops to keep them cool. Accessories, at that time, would include sunglasses and flip-flops because they cater to the conditions outside. On the other hand, during winter, people will normally wear thick and warm clothes which are the most appropriate attire to keep themselves warm. Boots, gloves, coats and hats are the main accessories at the time. Colors also tend to vary during the different seasons. Summer is associated with bright and sunny colors, whereas winter tones are typically darker and duller. Winter clothes are much more flattering and offer a wider variety of styles for every type of trend.
There are also different types of activities that can be carried out during summer and winter. Summer is the time where people will usually go traveling and it is also the best weather for outdoor activities. The beach is one place that is hopping in the summer with all ages of people because everyone wants to soak up the sun, go swimming and get a great tan before it’s too cold. Generally, kids are outside more during the summer, playing baseball, swimming or just enjoying the beautiful weather.
During winter, there are a large amount of sports that can only be played when there is snow. For example, skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating are strictly winter sports. Instead of family time being spent at the beach, it is spent in a ski lodge with a nice warm fire. Although it requires a lot more layers, kids can still go play outside in the winter, making snowmen and having snowball fights. In my opinion, there is nothing better than playing in the snow then going inside for some hot chocolate; You can’t get comfort like that at the beach. There are possibilities for fun and family time in any weather condition.
Many aspects of life are affected by the changes in season. Particularly, winter and summer portray the various extremities that are apparent during those months. While summer offers sun and fun at the beach, all in all, winter has so much more to offer in terms of food, clothing and activities.
