Northern states such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New York often experience heavy snowfall and cold temperatures, while states in the southern part of the country have milder winter conditions.
In many northern and mountainous regions, winter brings snowfall, creating a winter wonderland. Snow sports such as skiing and snowboarding are popular activities in areas with snowy winters. Cold regions often engage in winter sports like ice skating and snowmobiling.

Winter is associated with various holidays, including Christmas and New Year’s. Many Americans celebrate these holidays with festive decorations, gift-giving, and family gatherings.
Spring occurs from March to May in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring is synonymous with the blossoming of flowers and the budding of trees. Cherry blossoms, tulips, daffodils, and various other plants burst into vibrant colors, creating a visually stunning landscape.
Cities like Washington, D.C., and Seattle celebrate the blooming of cherry blossoms with festivals, parades, and events.
In some regions, spring is associated with increased rainfall. These spring showers contribute to the growth of vegetation and play a crucial role in supporting agriculture.
In the United States, spring break is a vacation period for students, typically in March or April. It is a time when many people, especially college students, take a break from their studies and engage in travel or other leisure activities.
Various festivals and events are celebrated during spring. For example, Easter, Earth Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Arbor Day are observed during this season.
