Seasons.....They're all the Same, Right?

No, they are not all the same. The Egyptians for example, their seasons were based off of the Nile river and when its
yearly flood came. Unlike ours that are based off of the weather. The three farming seasons are: Flood season from June to October, the Growing season from November to March, and the Harvest season from April to May. Now, I don't see why the Egyptian didn't just do it like us and do the seasons depending on the weather. Theirs is just too confusing. Kidding. Actually, I think their seasons are less complex than ours. Because it could feel like spring and the middle of Fall. So that dosen't really make sence. But we don't have a river to base the seasons off of, so we're stuck with the weather. Although I don't think I would want to seasons I live by to be based off of a river. No matter how important that river is. I still wouldn't want to base my whole year after it. How lame is that? Oh well. Not my decision to make.

  1. Wouldn't it be hard to base your seasons off of something so irregular? Well, I guess the were smart! I think that it might be easier than basing it off of the weather! This post is SO informational!
