#There's a saying about spring :

Dicton en français sur le printemps
*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.
