Spring trivia: 80 facts about the season that everything blooms!

Spring is one of the better seasons. You can go for walks in the nature and everything around you will be beautiful. Flowers, trees, everything!

But there are some things that you don’t know about this season! Let’s find them out together!

  1. Spring is one of the four temperate seasons
  2. Spring always follows winter and precedes summer
  3. There are various technical definitions of spring
  4. But local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs
  5. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere
  6. And vice versa
  7. At the spring equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long
  8. With day length increasing
  9. And night length decreasing as the season progresses
  10. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season
  11. And also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth
  12. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons
  13. Cultures may have local names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe
  14. Meteorologists generally define four seasons in many climatic areas: spring, summer, autumn and winter
  15. These are demarcated by the values of their average temperatures on a monthly basis
  16. With each season lasting three months
  17. The three warmest months are by definition summer
  18. The three coldest months are winter
  19. And the intervening gaps are spring and autumn
  20. Spring, when defined in this manner, can start on different dates in different regions
  21. Thus, in the US and UK, spring months are March, April and May
  22. While in New Zealand and Australia, spring conventionally begins on September 1 and ends November 30
  23. Swedish meteorologists define the beginning of spring as the first occasion on which the average daytime temperature exceeds zero degrees Celsius for seven consecutive days
  24. Thus the date varies with latitude and elevation
  25. In some cultures in the Northern Hemisphere, the astronomical vernal equinox is taken to mark the first day of spring
  26. And the summer solstice is taken as the first day of summer
  27. In Persian culture the first day of spring is the first day of the first month
  28. It is called Farvardin
  29. And it begins on 20 or 21 March
  30. In other traditions, the equinox is taken as mid-spring
  31. In the traditional Chinese calendar, the “spring” season consists of the days between Lichun, Chunfen as its midpoint
  32. Then ending at Lixia
  33. Similarly, according to the Celtic tradition, spring begins in early February
  34. And continues until early May
  35. The beginning of spring is not always determined by fixed calendar dates
  36. The phenological or ecological definition of spring relates to biological indicators
  37. Such as the blossoming of a range of plant species
  38. The activities of animals
  39. And the special smell of soil that has reached the temperature for micro flora to flourish
  40. These indicators, along with the beginning of spring, vary according to the local climate
  41. And according to the specific weather of a particular year
  42. Most ecologists divide the year into six seasons that have no fixed dates
  43. In addition to spring, ecological reckoning identifies an earlier separate prevernal season
  44. Between the hibernal, winter, and vernal, spring, seasons
  45. This is a time when only the hardiest flowers like the crocus are in bloom
  46. Sometimes while there is still some snowcover on the ground
  47. During early spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt relative to the Sun
  48. And the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere
  49. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly
  50. Causing new plant growth to “spring forth”
  51. Giving the season its name
  52. The snow begins to melt, swelling streams with runoff and any frosts become less severe
  53. In climates that have no snow, and rare frosts, air and ground temperatures increase more rapidly
  54. Many flowering plants bloom at this time of year, in a long succession, sometimes beginning when snow is still on the ground and continuing into early summer
  55. In normally snowless areas, “spring” may begin as early as February or August
  56. Heralded by the blooming of deciduous magnolias, cherries, and quince
  57. Many temperate areas have a dry spring, and wet autumn, which brings about flowering in this season, more consistent with the need for water, as well as warmth
  58. Subarctic areas may not experience “spring” at all until May
  59. While spring is a result of the warmth caused by the changing orientation of the Earth’s axis relative to the Sun, the weather in many parts of the world is affected by other, less predictable events
  60. The rainfall in spring follows trends more related to longer cycles
  61. Unstable spring weather may occur more often when warm air begins to invade from lower latitudes
  62. While cold air is still pushing from the Polar regions
  63. Flooding is also most common in and near mountainous areas during this time of year
  64. Because of snow-melt which is accelerated by warm rains
  65. In North America, Tornado Alley is most active at this time of year
  66. Especially since the Rocky Mountains prevent the surging hot and cold air masses from spreading eastward
  67. And instead force them into direct conflict
  68. Besides tornadoes, supercell thunderstorms can also produce dangerously large hail and very high winds
  69. For which a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado warning is usually issued
  70. Even more so than in winter, the jet streams play an important role in unstable and severe Northern Hemisphere weather in springtime
  71. In recent decades, season creep has been observed
  72. This means that many phenological signs of spring are occurring earlier in many regions by around two days per decade
  73. Spring in the Southern Hemisphere is different in several significant ways to that of the Northern Hemisphere
  74. There is no land bridge between Southern Hemisphere countries
  75. And the Antarctic zone capable of bringing in cold air without the temperature- mitigating effects of extensive tracts of water
  76. The vastly greater amount of ocean in the Southern Hemisphere at most latitudes
  77. At this time in Earth’s geologic history the Earth has an orbit which brings it in closer to the Southern Hemisphere for its warmer seasons
  78. There is a circumpolar flow of air uninterrupted by large land masses
  79. No equivalent jet streams
  80. The peculiarities of the reversing ocean currents in the Pacific
