Top Ten Reasons Why Summer Is Better Than Winter

A list that states why summer is better than winter.

The Top Ten

1 Summer is warm

Sometimes its to warm

Winter is freezing and you have to wear jackets. Summer you don't have to wear any jackets and you get to wear shorts. - Therandom

I think when it is summer you can do more stuff like play outside or like go swimming or like go to the beach you can go to the beach on winter but it won't be as fun as summer is. And the reason I like winter is because you can stay inside and play video games a lot and on summer you should go outside

This is especially great for northerners because we have HORRIBLE winters! - kaitlynrad11

3 For the majority of summer you have no school

This is my number 1 reason. - 3DG20

I've never liked school, so summer is my time to really enjoy life. It's a darn shame summer vacation is only 2 1/2 months long. As a warm weather lover, heat is second on my list too!

No school no homework no getting up at like at 7: 30 am or 7:00 am

Only for the last three weeks of summer is their no school. - Therandom

4 It's more fun to go outside in the summer

Well, yes, naturally! Although yesterday I went to watch an open air show, which was lovely; I wore my prettiest lace dress because it's light and airy. I didn't realise until I got home and undressed just how much my fair skin had caught the sun...I now have little flower-shaped, sun-baked marks all over my chest, belly and thighs. I look wild! - Britgirl

How the F this will help me if I get mosquito bites all the time huh!

I have to stay inside all summer because it is so hot.

Yes, it is, I get to go on my bike, or run around, or play soccer in my backyard, even go on my scooter. In winter, it is too cold to go outside. Plus, I hate cloudy and rainy days, I like sunny days, the days are more nostalgic to me than winter days. But I like snow though, but it does not snow where I live.

5 In winter you get numb

Cold hands are the worst.

This happens all of the time to me. - Therandom

And in summer you get to be abused by dumb kids, swelter in the heat, and get a stroke! How wonderful! (Also I was sarcastic)

It also happens to me as well, getting numb from the cold is really annoying to me.

I agree, you get to go to the beach or mountains and the roads are safe. In winter, those places might have snow, making it dangerous to drive on and you can't go there.

I agree. Their are way more things to do like swim, go to the beach, play volleyball and much more. Summer beats Winter by a longshot

I disagree - RoseCandyMusic
