Seasons are wonderful! Without all of them, we can't play in yellow, red, and orange leaves when autumn comes our way, have fun in the extra hot sun in the summer time, watched snowflakes fall during winter, or enjoyed the chilly mornings and blooming flowers of early spring. It's easy to take seasons for granted. What's the big deal? See the thing is, astronomers have discovered "yo yo" planets in other solar systems. These planets have long and exaggerated seasons. During the fall and the spring of one "yo yo" planet, life forms could live there. But during the winter, the unfortunate planet and its moon orbits very far from their star, farther than Pluto is to ours! In the summer, this planet is hurled very close to its star, which results in a yo yo orbit. So although you may think seasons are no big deal, they are more important to Earth than you imagine.

Maybe it is where you live, but in different parts of the world, they have all Summer-y or Autumn-y weather.

You're right, SWSD12904. It's actually interesting to imagine what it would be like living in a place with one season all year long. The good thing is that if, for instance, you live in Hawaii, you don't have to worry about buying winter clothes and getting cold or vice versa. That's very inspiring, AJ2HIP588000! I think I am going to help the Earth right now by turning off my computer! :smileyvery-happy:
