The winter means that you travel for holidays but otherwise it is best to be inside. When it comes to spring people are ready to get out of the house and spend some time outdoors. This means that families are packing up a picnic lunch and heading out for a day in the sun.

The spring is also the time of the year that people will take time off from work and take their family out for some fun.
