Get Out Those Summer Beach Outfits

When I met you in the summer
To my heartbeat sound
We fell in love
As the leaves turned brown

And we could be together baby
As long as skies are blue
You act so innocent now
But you lied so soon
When I met you in the summer

— Calvin Harris

If it’s a dance jam, barbeque, beach party, picnic in the park or school’s out, what time is it? It is summertime!

People who live especially in the colder climes look forward to summer with the anticipation of fun and celebration.

Consequently, they create activities around the season in a ritualistic and worshipful-like manner.summerSun-bathing, open-door stage concerts, theatrical performances, summer camps, family vacations, art exhibitions, and film festivals are some of the marked activities at this time.

Summer is the hottest of the four seasons. During this time of the year the days are longest and the nights are shortest.

In the northern hemisphere, summer extends over the months of June through August while in the southern hemisphere, people will experience summer in the months of December, January, and February.

Summer in the U.S. is commonly regarded as starting on Memorial Day weekend which is the last weekend in May and ending on Labor Day, the first weekend in September.

On the other hand, for example, summer in China begins in May and ends in the first week in August. In the Philippines, summer break covers the months of April and May.

The fact is there are lots of activities to participate in at this time of year and one should not miss out on the joy and happiness that come with the season.
