We always liked playing in the rain as kids .... We never melted or got sick from getting wet.
Well Dear Y&Y,
Where I live in the Pacific Northwest raincoast, yours is pretty much a question of playing in the rain or playing in the house...
So yes, the kids here are all somewhat inoculated/immune to rain.
When we have rain? I sure try to enjoy it !
If the weather is cold or chilly and windy while it's raining, then I will pull the kid inside. However, other than that, let them play in the rain. Put a mat down right inside the door - have towels at the ready - and throw an empty bucket outside for the kids to play with. It's the best smell there is, especially when you live in the south where it never rains.
I used to run and play in the rain when I was much younger but only in the summer. Winter rain is kind of solid.
If you are healthy then playing in the rain is fine. If you already have the sniffles, it is a recipe for a bigger illness.
I love walking in the rain, especially if it's really pelting down.
C.S.Lewis once pointed out that people who don't like being out in the rain probably had mothers who wouldn't let them play in it when they were kids.
Go for it!
I love playing in the rain!
A happy childhood memory is my father and I laughing and playing in the rain. I rarely give that man much credit, but he did teach me to keep in touch with my inner child.
When it's warm and there's a thunderstorm to boot. Fantastic feeling.
It is a common misconception that rain - or playing in the rain - may make you sick. Only if you come in contact with a virus, can you become ill with e.g. A cold. Playing outside may make you more susceptible to bacteria/viruses and cold temperatures can cause your body more stress but, other than that the rain or water itself will not make you ill. Case in point, I love playing in the rain :). The smell of rain and the serenity of the outdoors creates such a perfect calming environment. Even if I'm not outside I love looking at the rain fall with some hot cocoa indoors!
I usually like top walk in the rain. In high school I walked about a mile each way, rain or shine, and l learned to appreciate it. When in the Navy in San Diego I would take really long walks in the rain and dark. The rains they have there were wonderful - just a very light drizzle - you could walk for miles and never get really soaked.
It is absolutely FUN . . . Although better in warmer weather then in cold weather.
You don't get sick from rain. You get sick from germs, virus, bacteria, etc..
Depends on the individual.
you could get sick.
Both. Then again everything comes with price?
