Rain, rain, go away!
Come again another day!
These are the lyrics to a well-known children’s song. How do you feel about the rain? Does it make you feel “down” or sleepy? Is it refreshing? Does it remind you of home?
We have a saying in English: “April showers bring May flowers.” It’s normal to have rain at this time of year, but in the end, it’s a good thing because green things can grow. In the past few years, BC has experienced very bad forest fires because the forests are dry. California has also experienced several years of drought. Although we may not like the rain falling on our heads – or in our socks and shoes! – I think many people nowadays can appreciate how important it is for our beautiful world.
What is your favourite rainy day activity? Do you like to go outside and splash in puddles, like a kid? Or do you prefer to stay inside and do something relaxing? (For myself, I think the second option sounds much better!)
