First Day of Winter!

When is the first day of winter?
Let's find out!
All parts of the United States experience four seasons.  For some states seasons are more defined than others.  In the Northern parts of the United States Winter and Summer are very different.

Summer begins June 21st or 22nd and is the longest day of the year.  Winter begins on December 21st or 22nd and is the shortest day of the year.  If you live in Australia it is just the opposite.

Winter is one of the four seasons.
Winter is the season with the shortest days and the lowest temperatures.
When it is Winter in the Southern Hemisphere, it is Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
Trees and plants stop growing in the winter.
Many animals hibernate or migrate away from the cold weather.
Ice and snow are associated with Winter in many places on the earth.
Snow, sleet, hail, and freezing rain are associated with winter.
