Our calendar consists of twelve months – the amount of time it takes the Earth to complete one full cycle around the sun.
The 365 days of the year are divided into four different seasons, each of which complements another: winter and summer, spring and autumn. Each season is characterized by its own typical weather, changes in the animals and plants and by its designated songs. Every season creates a certain type of atmosphere. In Israel the transitional seasons – autumn and spring – are short and often bring surprising weather changes.
Winter is the coldest season, and it brings the rain. Each year we wait and hope for abundant winter rains and look forward to using our warm blankets, boots, umbrellas and coats. "Come rain!" sang the IDF Nachal entertainment troupe, lyrics by Tirza Atar and melody by Alona Turel.
