Turns Out Seasons Really Make No Sense at All

Most of us take seasons for granted as the only reality in which we live. But what if someone has a different reality than you? Cultures across the globe each measure seasons quite differently, as this video explores. Because of the Earth’s tilt, different parts of the globe experience winter and summer at the same time, so seasons really aren’t as consistent as we might believe. Not only that, but seasons were originally used as a way to help farmers plan crops, but since that isn’t as common anymore thanks to technology and a changing society, it might be time to give the seasons an overhaul.
