Summer vs. Winter; which is more fun?

Cold weather and hot weather are the two most opposing sides, both with good and bad benefits. In the summer, there are a lot more activities you can do, rather than the winter.

First off, the biggest reason is school. Winter is dominated by the school season and  being an upperclassman, driving in snowy weather is the scariest thing you’ll have to do. The roads are icy and slippery. Depending on how far you live from high school, leaving early means waking up even earlier.

On the other hand, driving in the heat is better stability and this even incorporates walking or biking.

Summertime means no school which provides a stress free relaxation period. You don´t have to worry about whats due the next day and everyday feels like the weekend. You don’t even seem to remember the date anymore because of the amount of fun you have.

¨In the summer I don’t have to worry about waking up early and going to school. It’s hot and I’m able to swim,¨ said freshman Morgan Kickels.

In contrast, coming home from school with a nice fire to warm yourself up with and some steamy hot chocolate with fuzzy blankets are the best way to go.

In the summertime, outdoor sports run the season. Soccer, football, and baseball are the three main sports. You can play just about any sport in the summer besides hockey, although there are indoor rinks for ice skating and hockey. The downfall is the heat.  More heat means more dehydration, and this puts teens at risk for heat exhaustion.

Live near a close pool or beach? The summertime is the best season to cool yourself off with a quick swim at the pool with your friends. That feeling when you’ve been laying out on the beach all day and your skin is tan and healthy is the best type of feeling.

¨Summer is better because it’s warm, I enjoy being tan, and this means more time with friends and I can play soccer outdoors,¨ said senior Anthony Bottini.

Summer provides the best anti-stress time of all. The possibilities are endless for having fun, whether it’s indoor or outdoor activities.
