Major Seasons, Holidays & Festivals in USA

USA is a bit different than most countries. They don’t have the Rainy Season like we do in India. It rains here all through the year. They have in all just 10 Federal Holidays. Though different states are free to choose their own other holidays over and above the 10 Federal ones.

There’s one thing tough that this country has cracked is how to get more out of less. As a result of this, most of their Federal Holidays are either on a Friday or a Monday. This gives them multiple long weekends spread out across the year and as a result, multiple opportunities to plan a vacation and actually take one.

Below is a guide to all the Major Seasons, Holidays & Festivals.


The United States is a very large country, and climates and weather can vary greatly by season and location.

Here are the 4 main seasons and the months during which you can experience them.

·        Summer: June - August

·        Fall: September - November

·        Winter: December - February

·        Spring: March - May

During summer, northern states enjoy warm — even hot — days and cooler mornings and nights, while southern states and tropical areas experience very hot temperatures.

In the fall, temperatures begin to cool down around the country. This is a welcome season in northern regions, where leaves change to beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange.

Winter is fairly mild in the southern states, while the northern, northeastern, midwestern, western mountains and Great Plains regions often encounter snow and colder temperatures.

During the spring, temperatures begin to warm up and thunderstorms and rainstorms are common across the country into the summer months.
