    Default en otoņo

    Is this true?:

    "Notice that you don’t use the article in:
    en otoņo
    in the fall, in the autumn"
    (Spanish Word of the Day | Dictionary.com)

    Is it true for the other seasons?
    En primavera y no en la primavera

    Hello, Mariaklec,

    Yes, the seasons of the year don't need to be preceded by an article.
    Regards,

    Debes usar el artículo definido cuando el nombre está definido. Si te refieres a un verano o a una primavera en particular sí debes usar el artículo o un adjetivo determinativo.
    Así:

    En la primavera de aquel aņo
    En aquel verano
    En 1944, durante el verano


    However, if you refer to the season in a general sense you don't use the article:

    En primavera florecen los sicomoros (what, by the way, is not true)
    En verano hace más calor que en otoņo.


    Pero:
    El verano del 85 fue más lluvioso que el del 82.

    I hope it helps.

    Thank you, all.
    The devil is in the details.
