Spring is here, San Miguel de Allende…LLegó primavera.



Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it will be autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.

La primavera es una de las cuatro estaciones de las zonas templadas. El término prima proviene de «primer» y vera de «verdor». Astronómicamente, esta estación comienza con el equinoccio de primavera (entre el 20 y el 21 de marzo en el hemisferio norte, y entre el 22 y el 23 de septiembre en el hemisferio sur), y termina con el solsticio de verano (alrededor del 21 de junio en el hemisferio norte y el 21 de diciembre en el hemisferio sur).
En la zona intertropical del hemisferio norte comienza el 21 de marzo hasta el 23 de septiembre. En la zona intertropical del hemisferio sur va desde el 23 de septiembre al 21 de marzo.
En la literatura, la primavera representa la juventud.
