Translation:The winter is from December to February.
The winter is from December until February. Is the word, until, all that different in this translation?
You are the best moderators with Duolingo. Keep up the good work! Thanks!
But winter lasts until the equinox, which is toward the end of March.
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.
Could you say vinter instead of vinteren? Vinter er fra december til februar?
You could, but then the english sentence would be "Winter is from December to February"
Doesn't winter begin in November? Hell, in Denmark it practically begins as early as September judging by the weather.
