#There's a saying about spring :
*In April don't get undressed too much, in May do what you like.*
Do you know that saying? What do you think it means ?
In April, indeed, we can observe some beautiful days, but the month of April also hides some surprises, like a very cold weather the day after a beautiful sunny day !
The cold may still be present in April! This saying is therefore a popular adage, based on the experience of our climate.
The weather is so variable in April that it's best to avoid getting out of winter clothes too quickly !
However, in May, the heat proves to be sufficient so that there is no longer any risk of cooling due to a sudden change in temperature.
That's why in the month of May we say "do as you please", because you can finally put on your summer clothes without catching a cold.
