Spring, also known as springtime, is one of the four temperate periods, succeeding winter and preceding summer. There are many technical meanings of spring, but local usage of the term differs giving to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring 春分の日 in the Northern Hemisphere, it is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. At the spring (or vernal) equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long, with daytime length increasing and nighttime length lessening as the Season progresses.
Spring and “springtime” refer to the period, and also to ideas of reawakening, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better labelled in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Philosophies may have local names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.
