I live in Japan, where there are four distinctive seasons. In summer it gets so hot and humid that we don’t want to go out, and one might expect it to get freezing in winter, again preventing you from going out. It would be a dream-like experience to live in a place where there is only one season, especially a place with a tropical climate. We just need one kind of clothing, no worries about catching a cold when the season is about to change. However, I prefer to live in areas where we can experience several climate changes in a year, having admitted that it might be a tougher choice.
Having different climate allows us to have different experiences according to the season we are in, which eventually enrich our everyday lives. For example, we can enjoy swimming in the sea in summer, and making a snow man in winter. If we live in areas which has just one season, what we can do would be limited in a way that makes our lives boring. Also we cherish and try to enjoy the season we are in because that season will not last forever and change someday. Changes certainly raise the quality of our life.
Wider variety of food that we can enjoy is another source of joy. Different climate provides us with different kinds of food which tastes best in particular time of the year. Those foods harvested in their best season not only taste good but also contain far more nutrition and help us stay healthy. Here again, changes help us lead a better life. Those who live in places with single kind of weather might feel it annoying and difficult to stay in a place with more than two seasons, since it requires them to adjust their way of living according to the season they are in. However, people have lived in its long history while adjusting to the environment constantly changing. From this point of view, changes and adjustment are nature of our history and it is highly natural that we should have changes in our lives. Living in a place where there is one season might sound easier and more comfortable to many people, but I would like to say it offers you less excitement.
