How did they come up with the four seasons Winter, Fall, Summer and Spring?

Report as

The first day of each season is its respective solstice or equinox.

The first day of spring is the spring equinox (day and night are equal amounts of time.)
The first day of summer is the summer solstice (longest day and shortest night of the year.)
The first day of fall is the fall equinox.
And the first day of winter is the winter solstice (shortest day and longest night of the year.)

In the spring you see springs.
In the summer, you get the sum of what you've sowed.
In the fall, you see the leaves fall.
IN the winter, ...?.... :)
just a guess!

Before calendars the stars position in the sky gave away what weather changes were on the way and how to handle crops and sowing, even floods!...some stars are seasonal and it went from there.
