Except in Arizona. Here, vinteren er fra 2 december til 28 december!

The winter is from December until February. Is the word, until, all that different in this translation?

Could you say vinter instead of vinteren? Vinter er fra december til februar?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MissEdith

You could, but then the english sentence would be "Winter is from December to February"

But winter lasts until the equinox, which is toward the end of March.

Not in Denmark. In Denmark everything is different.

This is just referring to the common division of the months into the four seasons, not the moment when the weather starts to change, but you are correct.

As an Australian, I have never heard of the seasons being to do with solstices and equinoxes. The weather changes at different times in different places anyway, for example I can say that winter weather definitely kicks in before the solstice where I live.

Doesn't winter begin in November? Hell, in Denmark it practically begins as early as September judging by the weather.

Pøh, in Denmark they hardly have winter at all! It doesn't even snow there! :)
