Winter vs Summer
In today’s writers work shop will be talking about my 2 favorite seasons that are Winter and Summer.in my perspective these two seasons are completely different.
Some people may like a different season than you, but that doesn’t matter;you can like whatever you want. I personally prefer summer probably because that’s when my birthday is!
The two seasons are completely different So, yeah, I prefer summer more than winter mostly because of the weather. Personally, I don’t like being too cold, but that’s just my preference.
In the summer you can do more sports outside (because it’s nicer weather). Sorts like baseball, soccer, swimming, lacrosse, and football. Swimming is my “favorite thing in the summer”, and in the summer you can go to the beach and play “in the warm sand”.
In the winter you can also still do sports but different ones like, skating, hockey, indoor swimming. Its also colder outside, but also you can play with all the snow ,but you can’t do that in the summer.
So now you see that the 2 seasons are completely opposite. One, season is a bit colder, the other season is warmer, obviously because they are opposite season’s.
