Las Estaciones • La Primavera
Las Estaciones The majority of the seasons in South America are REVERSED than what we have here. Ex: When we are in Summer, they are in Winter. Because of the seasons, children go to school in a different period of time. Schools usually start at the end of February or beginning of March and end in the middle of December. Christmas happens to be in the beginning of the Summer, so we have a VERY HOT SEASON!!
Because Latin America is big, our seasons are very different everywhere. In the tropic, Spring time is like here in GA: very humid and rainy, but in places such as Chile, the Spring time is warm and dry, with a very dry Summer.
