Spring season in North America already started last Thursday, March 20, 2014. Blogs and channels in Youtube have already updated their tabs about their spring hauls and spring must-haves. However, in the Philippines, life continues.
The dry heat and blazing sun. Spring should somehow bring refreshing air but not now in tropical countries like the Philippines. So, do we have spring in the Philippines?
Spring in the Philippines
Spring means “tag-sibol” when translated in Tagalog. It means regrowth. You probably have the idea that there are four main seasons—spring, summer, winter and fall. However, in tropical countries like the Philippines, we only have two seasons—the dry and rainy season.
Dry season is from December to May, while rainy season is from June to November. Since the Earth revolves and rotates, different countries experiences different season on a certain time of a year. For this instance, when the Northern Hemisphere celebrates spring, we on the other hand are on our way to summer. (I can hear Olaf singing “In Summer”)
Although we don’t really have spring in the Philippines, it feels like spring is just around the corner this time of the year. The clothes we wear, the colors we pick, the accessories we use—it feels so spring. Fashion is eternal—it’s not just seasonal. It’s unofficially spring in the Philippines right now.
