I am not keen on the summer when it gets really hot and I feel uncomfortable and sweaty though I do like going on holiday with my children to see people during the summer holidays. I don't enjoy the autumn much because it rains so much and there is nothing worse than getting soggy when you've shopping to do and children to pick up from school. I do like watching the rain run down the window though and listening to thunder and watching lightening. Spring is a neither here nor their month really and it is nice to see lambs jumping about in the fields and seeing all the beautiful flowers opening. For me though it really has to be winter. Wrapping up warm and going out on those crisp mornings and coming home to a nice cosy warm house. When I was in Switzerland one winter I loved the smell of roasting chestnuts on every street corner. It also means that Christmas is around the corner and as I am usually very organised and have my Christmas gifts for everyone early I love to watch the hustle and bustle of everyone else buying their presents. So what are you favourite things about the four seasons? Which one do you like the best?

Well, my favorite season as far as weather is concerned is Spring. It is nice and the flowers are in bloom - it is not too hot, but not chilly either. However my favorite time of the year is the Winter because my favorite holiday is Christmas! Also, my birthday and my daughter's birthday are in December. So there is so much to celebrate and I am in a great mood the whole month. I really get into it so yes, Christmastime or Winter is my very favorite season!! Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

Hi andalond Yeah I hear the weather in the desert can be very extreme, the summer being very hot and the winter being very cold, there doesn't seem to be anything inbetween!

Rainy season i like most, because in our country the most part of the year is filled only with summer.. scorching sun all through the year with temperatures as high as 105' F's..and some times it drops, but the humidity remains.. So, most of us like the rainy season.. I love watching torrential downpours splashing hard on the earth.... It is a majestic scene..

I like spring because everything is waking up again from hibernating during the winter, the grass is getting green all the trees are budding out, and all the little wild flowers are blooming, and you hear all the birds singing. I don't like summer, because its too hot, and I don't like being uncomfortable and sweaty either, I sweat alot during the summer, and its sticky, the only thing I like about it is the summer holidays, like Memorial Day and July 4th of course, having all the cookouts, but I could do without the heat. I like Fall, because its getting cooler, not so hot anymore, I like to see all the fall colors on the trees, and it reminds me of halloween time, and the kids trick or treating, and Thanksgiving time, turkey time..lol. Winter, I don't like it too much either, it gets too cold for me, and if its snowing or something I can't get out and do what I want to do, because I can't drive in that stuff. I do like sitting in front of the fireplace tho, and wrapping up in a blanket and reading a good book. I might not like it too much but I make the best out of it, and of course its the Christmas season, time to put the Christmas tree up. Now I'm ready for it to start cooling off...lol. Have a good day

Hi there walijo2008 I spent some time out in America and loved the Fall. Like you say the different coloured leaves on the trees and stuff and still able to go out in jumpers. I remember the smells of Haloween what was it like cinnimon or something and the dried corn hanging up. I went to NY to see the thanksgiving day parade and froze my butt off is was so cold but I enjoyed it! Thank you for your response

hmm thats hard I like spring and autumn sometimes winter since it doesn't get too cold here. Anything but summer b/c its really hot and as soon as you walk outside the heat just takes your breath away b/c of the humidity here. I would like to live somewhere where the seasons are really what they are supposed to be. I don't need snow but it would be nice instead of walking around in shorts for Christmas with a santa hat.

In my Hometown in the Philippines we only have 2 season which rainy days and Summer time and I choose to have a Summer to enjoy it going with friends and family and here in Kuwait as my second home we still have the same weather it is still 2 season here they have Summer and Winter without a snow and it is more worst because you will not enjoy it much well rather than Summer because if it is very cold I cannot go out and stay in my favorite place in which it is in the seaside......

Every season has its own importance and its own pleasure. Winters, its cold and makes you go feel cozy into warm clothes, warm and colorful clothes and jackets which maximizes a personality look for sure. Hot drinks and making you go more close to your partner too. Ahem Ahem hehe, For summers its really hot so its time to wear some bright and lite clothes drink lots of cold things and go out to some beach or hill station and just be relaxed. Rains are cool with the showers and I love to get wet in rains and its fabulous experience Its very hard to describe what season I love, So i would go with spring where you find Cool breezes in the mornings and crisp heat of the sun rays and sometimes unseasonal rains also.! Just perfect season - Spring!

hi there, there are only two seasons in my place: dry season and rainy season, as it is in tropical zone. i like both. we need both to make it balanced. but i slightly prefer the dry season, as i can do more activities when it's not raining.

Hi there sutanhartanto To be honest I think all our season are messed up here in England, rains when it supposed to be sunny etc. I can't imagine what tropical storms must be like, magical to start with then tiresome after a while. You must spend a lot of time inside! I hate getting sunburnt too so I spend little time in the sunshine when we do have it!! Thank you for responding.
