~ Summer Special ~

Summer!! I know, it sounds so cliche... However, I finally understand why summer holiday is so looked forward to :P

Summer is a season that is sunny and bright, and in movies this weather generally indicates that something good is about to happen. For example, the guy finally understands who he is in love with, or then that a family argument has been finally resolved. I am not saying that movies have it all figured out, but they tell us something. Don't they? Sun does mean fun. Summer does mean relaxation. Bright does mean joyful. At least, according to my newly edited book on life:)

Many of you may not understand what I am about to say, but I will say it anywayz. A country that is sunny all year around, or just about, and this is just in my circumstances, does not feel the same enjoyment as Summer nears. Actually, I recall that in Australia I loved Winter! Winter was, for me, a relief. The rain and cool weather. Just to be sure, by cool I mean maybe 15 degrees in the day time, and 5 degrees in the evening. I guess these circumstances are a pretty important factor that creates the awesomness that Summer brings.

Another factor that controls the excitement of Summer is that school is pretty much full on throughout the school year. For example, European countries start their school year in August and end May/June. In the schools I have been to in Finland there have not been too many holdays inbetween school years. This way the Summer break is well deserved. On the other hand however there are countries where school starts in February and ends in December. This is how it is in Australia. There we have four terms, with a two week interval between each. Instead of Summer, there is a holiday for Christmas: mid December to end of January. So, in these countries the Summer is split into many different holidays. This does not make a holiday so exciting, since there are regular holidays. Saying this, I am not being bias. I loved to finally reach the christmas holiday in Australia, but the feeling of finally reaching the Summer holidays is breath-takingly exciting.

You know, I never thought that Summer would feel so amazing! I had been looking forward to Summer, but when I finally reached it, kinda, I was over-whelmed. Simply bliss...

Okay, enough with my expertise on the nature of Summer:)

Have an awesome week!
