A sports day should be held in fall or spring
In my childhood a sports day was held always at autumn. It was an event symbolic of autumn.
An autumn has a lot of fruits and we could eat persimmons, pears grapes and chestnuts at lunch time. It was a great fun. We had firecrackers at the beginning and the last “Hail Cheers”, all day long, exciting. It was a festival of the region.
Well, recently more schools are being held in spring than in autumn. The reason is that there are more junior high schools and high schools that decide the transition in spring in preparation for the exam. Summer is tough, they are worried about typhoons and rain. The advantages of the spring, especially in May, the children can have the experience of a sense of accomplishment and an achievement. And also May has a lot of sunny days. They might have a strong friendship with friends at that time.
Are you a spring people or autumn people? I am very old man therefor I have a very stubborn and I have had the idea that a sports day should have at autumn.
It’s fun to move your body and it’s a very meaningful to work together to accomplish one thing. I wish the children would be able to show their shinning appearance and a lot of smiles.
