How Many Days Until Summer?
How Long Until Summer
Summer is the hottest of the four seasons on Earth. That said, in some places, Summer is the season with the most rain, and in others, it comes as a dry season. Four seasons are experienced mostly in places where it is not too hot or too cold. Summer happens to the north and south sides of the Earth at opposite times of the year. The northern side of earth experiences summer between the months of June and September and in the south part of the world, it takes place between December and March. This difference is explained by the fact that when the north part of Earth points towards the Sun, the south part points away from it.
There are a lot of holidays in the Summer season, we are going to look at school breaks and other public holidays that happen in summer.
Typically, schools and universities take advantage of the warmer weather and the longer days in summer. In almost all countries, children are out of school during this time of the year for summer break, the dates however vary from country to country.
The following are a number of the public holidays that fall during the summer season:
- Australia Day (26 January)

As said earlier, the warmest season of the year is in the Summer. Temperatures differ over the period of this season depending largely on their location on the Earth; it follows that locations near the equator experience a much warmer temperature than those near the poles. This is as a result of the curve of the earth, causing these places to receive more sunlight than others, especially those lying near the poles.
Though it is normal to expect warmer weather during summer time, spiritualists have said to experience more good spirits, prosperity and general extravagance during this season. The summer solstice marks the beginning of this season, ushering in a season of land cultivation and the restocking of food.
