Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox And The Seasons

In the ‘Chambers book Of Facts’ published in 2003, it states that in the northern hemisphere, spring lasts from 21st March to 21st June, the summer from 21st June to 23rd September, autumn or fall lasts from 23rd September to 21st December and winter lasts from 21st December to 21st March.

So the seasons are split up in to three months each but the weather does not always fit the seasons. Who would think that summer lasted until nearly the end of September and that it was still autumn until deep in to December when the weather can be so wintry in northern climes. I always think that September would be a great time to hop on a plane to Australia and then not come back until the end of March!
